Adelaide Andriot

Program Manager of FounderFuel

Jurist and self starter, Adelaide joined Real Ventures motivated by the search of a new challenge. Montrealer at heart since she moved to Quebec to study at McGill Law School in 2012, she now calls Notman House her home away from home. In spring 2016, she made the full leap to the startup ecosystem when supporting FounderFuel in communications, operations and event planning. She has contributed to make Demo Day 2016 a massive event in the Montreal community! Adelaide enjoys looking at life through a creative lens and has started back in 2013 capturing one pic per day.
