NICOLAS DUVERNOIS

Pur entrepreneur

Entrepreneur at heart,
Nicolas Duvernois always had his head full of ideas. It was in 2006, after a catastrophic business experience, that he decided to launch Pur Vodka. Knowing absolutely nothing about spirits, it was typing the word “vodka” into the Google search engine that it all started. In order to finance everything, Nicolas was a sanitation worker in a hospital, by night, and vodka developer, by day, for almost 4 years.
Today, Nicolas is the founding President of Duvernois, the largest independent producer of spirits in Quebec. Leader visionary and creative, he is veryinvolved in the community.Author of two best-selling Entrepreneur in the Pure State: the book andVive lesidées folles: the book, featured columnist of Journal les Affaires, originator of The Adopte inc movement, conference extremely popular and Dragon on the popular show Dans l’oeil du Dragon on Radio-Canada, his many projects are on the rise. Holder of a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of Montreal, Nicolas sits, in particular, on the Board of Directors of Investissement Québec.
