Venture for Canada’s 2022 Fellowship launches it’s 8th cohort
October 1, 2021
Venture for Canada (VFC) is excited to announce the launch of applications for its 8th Fellowship Cohort.
The Fellowship Program supports recent post-secondary grads and startups across Canada. The program is designed for ambitious, curious graduates looking to invest in the training, support and network they need to successfully launch their entrepreneurial careers.
In 2022 the Fellowship Program will offer an expanded training stemming from the renowned European Commission’s EntreComp Framework, and job support program, including individualized job search coaching, job-readiness training, access to Fellow Alumni mentorship, direct connections to VFC’s growing network of startups across Canada through networking events and introductions, a job board with the latest jobs and access to a monthly speaker series featuring Canadian leaders like John Stackhouse, Irfhan Rawji and Tabatha Bull.
2022 Fellows will return to VFC’s flagship three-week Training Camp in Kingston, Ontario, hosted in collaboration with the Smith School of Business at Queen’s University.
Additionally, through the Fellowship, VFC connects startups across Canada with ambitious, entrepreneurial entry-level talent. In 2021, Venture for Canada has already partnered with over 108 startups to enhance their hiring practices, talent pool, and pipeline. 8 out of 10 partners would recommend the VFC Fellowship to another startup.
Recent graduates seeking startup work opportunities, entrepreneurial skill development, and growing their professional network should apply to the Fellowship Program. To be considered for the next intake and be among the first to secure a spot in the Fellowship before spots fill up, applicants should apply by October 1st. There will be a further intake period in November and throughout early 2022.
