From secretary to successful entrepreneur (some would say "from secretary to millionaire"), Anne Marcotte has built her reputation by launching her own company after having lost her job (Clin d'oeil magazine has included her among the 25 sharpest women in Quebec). In the 1990s, Anne Marcotte launched Marcotte Multimedia inc., an Internet solutions company among the most profitable in Quebec, with prestigious customers such as The Washington Post. Ten years later, she sold her company to a major communications leader in North America (Transcontinental) to focus on her new career as a speaker, TV host & producer and columnist dedicated to the promotion of entrepreneurship and the pursuit of dreams & ambitions. Anne Marcotte is the creator, producer and host of the first television show to highlight up and coming entrepreneurs: VoirGRAND.tv. Fun fact, in 2011 VoirGRAND.tv discovered the inventor of the best vodka in the world, Nicolas Duvernois from PUR Vodka who was, during the televised auditions, a janitor at night for Sainte-Justine Hospital. 

An entrepreneur at heart, Nicolas Duvernois is the creator of PUR Vodka, one of the most honoured vodkas in the world. Author of the bestseller Entrepreneur à l’état PUR, a popular speaker and co-founder of the Adopt Inc. contest, Nicolas Duvernois is proof that even in the face of  adversity, success is possible.
