Front Row Ventures is Canada’s leading university-focused and student-operated VC firm with a presence on 20+ university campuses across Canada. We are early-stage and industry-agnostic investors. We back high impact student entrepreneurs with diverse backgrounds and ambitious technology-enabled ideas, regardless of their field of work.

Every year, we select and train 60+ outstanding students with diverse backgrounds from across the country. They review over 800 student-led start-ups and invest $25K checks into the most promising ventures.  Over the past 5 years, we have invested in 30 companies including Nomic Bio and Valence Discovery. Combined, our portfolio has gone on to raise over $60 million in follow-on funding with top tiers investors.

What’s in it for you? FRV student’s are given the unique opportunity to gain valuable experience in VC while developing professional skills and building out their network. Our variety of teams expose our associates to different areas of VC including deal sourcing,  portfolio management, data analysis, marketing and talent management. These skills carry forward into their careers making them highly employable and valuable members of any team, whether they pursue careers in VC or any entrepreneurial spaces. Following their time at FRV,  associates have gone on to have successful careers not just as VCs, but founders, consultants, engineers in startups and more. FRV is an invaluable opportunity for any students looking to learn more about VC, entrepreneurship, or careers in startups.

As we gear up to close our new $5M pan-canadian fund, we are launching a new investment chapter in BC as part of our yearly recruitment starting in January.
