With you, we collectively nurture young entrepreneurs

As you well know, entrepreneurship isn’t for everyone! The Venture for Canada Fellowship allows our young talent to gain top-notch skills, a national network of entrepreneurs and investors, and a realistic experience on what life is like in a startup environment. For some Fellows, this puts them in a great position to launch their own startups, and for others, clarity on how they can best add value to an existing company.
