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.


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
