Front Row Ventures is the first student-run venture capital fund entirely managed by students in Canada. Launched in 2017 in partnership with Real Ventures, Front Row Ventures will invest 600 000$ over the next four years in 24 student startups.
We're convinced that students are in a unique position to challenge the status quo. Their university years are an entrepreneurial sweet spot, and we want to help them to launch unthinkable ventures, and start companies that change the world.
Companies like Facebook, Google, and Snapchat were created by student founders, but most student entrepreneurs still lack access to capital.
