Alexandre Desabrais

Co-Founder Solios Watches
Panel Digital transformation & sales channels


After graduating in business administration from HEC Montréal, Alexandre began his career in consulting for financial institutions. Realizing that the corporate world of big business and banking was not meeting his ambitions and interests, he headed to a Montreal tech start-up, District M.

It was then that he fell in love with the world of entrepreneurship, having the firm conviction that he would start his own business. It was in 2017 that he watched the documentary Before the Flood, on climate change. Realizing that despite his good intentions, his lifestyle could be harmful to the environment, he decided at that time, with his future business partner Samuel Leroux, that their company had to have a positive impact on the environment and community.

Being fans of watches from the start, they understand that this symbol that we wear on the wrist has the potential to influence the way we consume, while offering an alternative never seen before in this industry.
