Are you curious about the Start-up Visa in Canada? This popular program is a true gem of Canadian business immigration, providing opportunities for foreign innovators and entrepreneurs to launch their business ideas in one of the largest and most stable economies in the world!
Unlike other business immigration options, the Start-up Visa requires a letter of support from a designated organization. These organizations are government-recognized venture capital firms, angel investors, and accelerators that support businesses through funding or business coaching and other services.
On this month’s webinar, we will welcome special guest Stuart Browne from the designated organization, Pycap Venture Partners. In addition to asset management, financial and other business services, Pycap runs a Start-up Visa incubator program. Join us as we learn from Stuart about the basics of the Start-up Visa, how the incubator program works, what types of businesses Pycap works with, and what it takes to receive a letter of support.
Guest: Stuart Browne is the CEO of Pycap Venture Partners as well as CFO/Co-founder of ChargerQuest. In addition, he is an instructor at Canada's top two business schools (Schulich School of Business, York University and the University of Toronto) where he teaches courses in venture capital, private equity, corporate finance, and entrepreneurship for BBA, MBA, and Master of Finance programs.
