Job and Volunteer Postings: The Next Big Thing

May 02, 2016

The Next Big Thing's Fellowship is Canada's premiere program for youth innovators, builders, makers and doers. Since 2014, TNBT has accelerated 22 youth-founded startups and 34 young entrepreneurs. The Fellowship Program is held in two parts – The Venture Base Track, and the Growth & Investment Track – each lasting 4 months.

During the Venture Base Track you build the foundation of your business. You will learn technical and entrepreneurial-based skills, test prototypes, build strong foundations for business growth, product development and market fit. You’ll also be coached by legal, accounting, and financial management to business and leadership experts. 

The Growth & Investment Track is exactly what it sounds like. During this half of the program, you are given advice on growing your business and securing funding. Ventures will hear advice from mentors, VCs, Angels, ETC so that you can make the most informed decisions possible about how to fund your venture. This part of the program will help you take your product to market, and find investment to sustain your business beyond TNBT.
