A springboard for your entrepreneurial career.
You’ll get the opportunity to dip your toes into entrepreneurship. You’ll develop and dive deep into entrepreneurial skills and learn what it takes to thrive at a startup, the innovation ecosystem, or even build a business in the long term.
Your intro to the startup world.
You'll get connected to small, high-growth startups from across Canada and hired into your first new-grad gig. Don't worry, there's lots of job seeking training, coaching and support from us while you build a network of like-minded leaders.
The training you never knew you needed.
We know what startups want in their employees, and our network of entrepreneurs have taught us a thing or two about the skills you need to be an entrepreneur, innovator or hustler. Our entrepreneurial skill-building training is designed so you have what it takes to thrive.
Friends, future business partners, community, oh my!
Imagine a community of young, entrepreneurial people across Canada that are there to support you, share experiences and lay the foundation of your professional network. This is the picture of our VFC community; home to hundreds of diverse, curious, and innovative folks just like you.
