Venture for Canada

Fellow Placement

Company Match Making Process

Collect Preferences:

Fellows and Partner Startups are matched together based on mutual preferences.

Fellows manage the interview processes with the individual companies. Until a Fellow is placed, Venture for Canada has a weekly call with the Fellow to provide support, advice, and tips.

Interviews:

Every company has its own interview process. Venture for Canada provides tips to selected Fellows based on experience placing Fellows into similar companies.

Once placements begin:

    • Fellows become full-time employees of the company in Ontario or Nova scotia
    • Companies have the option of offering equity or options. Salaries for a Fellow average above $40,000 but they can earn significantly more based on their skill-set
    • It is at the company’’s discretion to provide the Fellow with raises, promotions, equity, bonuses, etc. based on performance
    • There is no “end date” to a Fellow’s tenure with the company, but they commit to work there for at least two years
