Real Ventures Launches ‘Real Fellowship’ to Foster Next Generation of Startup Talent

Real Ventures this week announced the launch of the Real Fellowship, a 10-week program that gives young Canadians the opportunity to build “the skills they need to make a dent in the startup world.”

Based in Montreal and launching June 9, the curriculum will include workshops, lectures, private events, mentoring, and hands-on practice with participating startups, including Frank & Oak, BusBud, and TransitApp.

“We see high growth companies as one of the most viable vehicles of progress,” says JS Cournoyer, Partner at Real Ventures, “and we believe it is instrumental to expose more young Canadians to startup careers.”

According to Cournoyer, the Real Fellowship is a program that’s been designed to train and prepare the next generation of talent. He says it intends to prepare these women and men for an entry into the high growth world of startups and in doing so embrace a more entrepreneurial route to success.

Applications are being accepted until May 18.
