Next Founders is a program that accelerates the growth of Canada’s most promising entrepreneurs by providing mentorship, access to capital, and unparalleled founder development. We want to help scale both the founder and their business.  It is one of three programs delivered by NEXT Canada, which launched in 2010 and is now supported nationally by over 300 entrepreneurs and business leaders.

Our model is all about founder development.  After an intense Immersion Week, optional programming is delivered throughout the summer.  This is customized education taught by some of the world’s top faculty and most successful entrepreneurs who have been in your shoes. You will also be exposed to an extraordinary community of investors and peers.
