The SME Technology Development Support Corporation (SME-TDSC) was founded in 1996 by business people from eastern Quebec and the North Shore. For almost 10 years, it supported more than 300 innovation projects while promoting and maintaining a specialized workforce in the region, thus allowing several companies to develop and remain competitive and be on the leading edge of innovation.

In April 2013, always aiming in helping to expand Lower Saint-Lawrence’s enterprises, the SME-TDSC was entrusted with a new mandate complementary to the innovation-production services, a marketing-export component.

Thus evolving into a regional export promotion organization (ORPEX), the organization acquired a new entity and became Innov & Export PME.
