Here at FRV, our drive to support ambitious Canadian student entrepreneurs is rooted in a belief that those in the best position to help them, are also students with a diverse set of experiences and interests.
🧑💻 Your Study and Interests:
Right now, you may be a student in a Canadian college or university in their undergraduate, graduate, or post-graduate study across any major and faculty.
Please note, you DO NOT need to have prior experience in a related field, simply an interest in venture capital, student entrepreneurs, or technology ventures will suffice.
We hire all the way from university freshmen to Ph.D. students. Because our associates need to be students, we ask you are at least in your penultimate year of study, so you’re still in school when you’re with FRV, as our associates graduate to alumni when they graduate university.
Preferably, we hope to have you apart of the team for many years to come, but we understand if you decide to focus on another opportunity after the first year.
⚡️ Your Experiences:
We’re in the business of predicting the future through our investments. Our inherent success as funders and supporters lies in the diversity of experiences of our associates—the more unique perspectives our team has, the better our ability to assess technology ventures and place calculated, but daring bets.
This is one of the core reasons we look for students of all age ranges. In doing so, we understand some applicants will have inherently more experience than others, and that’s okay.
We’re looking for signs of passion in the technology, venture capital, or startup space—this can be through work at a related organization, personal research and writing in the space, or exposure to building things in what you enjoy.
So nothing to worry about if you feel like you haven’t done enough. We really care about your potential.
