Calling all entrepreneurs! Come have your Friday morning coffee with us at Startup Zone! Bring your business ideas, questions, and grievances and get some great advice from local, like-minded entrepreneurs!
Our special guest for July 20th is Patrick Farrar, Startup Zone’s new CEO and co-founder of Venture for Canada!
As a startup advisor and mentor for several businesses, Patrick has helped launch and foster several social startups, leading efforts in raising millions in financing.
Attending Jonkoping International Business School in Sweden, the top school in the world for research on Family Business and Entrepreneurship, Patrick conducted research on developing long-standing businesses.
His experience and love for start-ups pull him towards other ventures that bring added value to the Canadian economy through business creation and employment.
Drawing on startup experiences, he’s inspired to enhance the support and training of ambitious entrepreneurs. This has led him to Venture for Canada, a not-for-profit Fellowship that recruits, trains and supports high-performing talent from Canadian universities to work at startups and growth companies.
