Lighthouse Labs, Venture for Canada Partner to Foster Entrepreneurship in Canada

Lighthouse Labs and Venture for Canada are partnering.

The partnership will aim to “provide more opportunities for recent graduates with entrepreneurial spirits, helping them gain the vital technical skills needed for building Canada’s next generation companies,” according to Lighthouse.

Venture for Canada is a not-for-profit organization that recruits recent graduates to work at Canadian startups in need of talent. Through the program, recent graduates gain the experience, network, and training needed to successfully launch their own firms.

As part of the partnership, Fellows will receive discounted rates for Lighthouse Labs courses, which can supplement their on-the-job work experience at different startups.

“This partnership will provide more recent graduates with essential technical skills,” said Scott Stirrett, Executive Director of Venture for Canada.

In addition, Lighthouse Labs says it is offering discounted prices for courses to all Venture for Canada applicants. For the most recent cohort of Fellows, 800 individuals applied for 37 Fellowship spots.

“Both organizations are committed to providing Canada’s top talent with the skills that they need to succeed in their careers,” said Jeremy Shaki, CEO of Lighthouse Labs.
