Accelerating startups through the power of networks.

FounderFuel is focused on the pre-seed to seed stage.

We invest 100K in your startup for 5% equity, and provide $500K in perks and services. Founders have access to EIR’s, Mentors and Investors from all across Canada and the US.

The 13 week program consists of workshops, talks, intense pitch prep and office hours (with VC’s, mentors, partners and alumni). Each week is a new sprint and the marathon concludes at our 1200+ attendee Demo Day.

We’re looking for a market-ready product and strong teams of 2-3 with at least one technical cofounder. Most importantly, we look for founders with an ambitious vision and clear goals for their time at FounderFuel.

FounderFuel is powered by Real Ventures, the most active seed stage VC firm in Canada.



Applications for our next cohort will open in early 2017. We’ll keep you posted, so stay tuned.
