Dentons hosts and celebrates Venture for Canada’s first fellow graduation ceremony

Since 2016, Dentons Canada has been a strategic partner with Venture for Canada, a non-profit organization that recruits, trains and places top recent graduates to work at Canadian startups. In addition to providing legal and entrepreneurial resources and mentorship, Dentons has hosted many of their events (such as their National Fellow Selection Days) and was honored to recently add their very first fellow graduation ceremony to the list. Notable attendees included Andrew D’Souza, founder of Clearbanc, and his co-founder, Michele Romanow, also known for her role on Dragon’s Den.

“The amazing team at Venture for Canada has achieved an incredible development in their fellowship program. The quality, drive and talent of the fellows continue to impress and inspire us all. We are excited to see continued growth of the fellows as they move on to their new respective roles and become architects of the Canadian startup landscape,” said Andre Garber.

Dentons Canada Startup Program and Venture for Canada will continue to work together in fostering and cultivating a next generation of Canadian tech entrepreneurs and innovators.
