We're the first student-led venture capital fund in Canada investing solely in student-run startups.

 
Front Row Ventures gives students a unique opportunity to support innovative startups while learning the ins and outs of early stage venture capital. If I were a student, I’d definitely join.

"There’s something very powerful in being the first investor in a startup. You’re basically telling the founders that whatever obstacles they’ll face, you’ll be by their side to bring their vision to reality."

We're looking for the best students in Montreal to help run Front Row Ventures.

What's Front Row Ventures?

We've raised a $600,000 fund that we'll be investing in 24 student-run companies over the next 4 years. 

Companies like Facebook, Google, and Snapchat were created by student founders, but most students lack access to capital. 

We're closing that gap by backing student founders with an early investment and a portfolio of resources and mentors. 

We have team members from a diverse set of backgrounds, all working to help reshape the tech and startup culture on Canadian university campuses.
