Futurpreneur Canada, a friend of the Founder Institute for a third year in a row, has agreed to show their support for FI’s mission of globalizing Silicon Valley by giving graduates of the upcoming Montreal Spring semester "Fast-Track" seed funding.
Futurpreneur Canada is the only national, non-proﬁt organization to provide ﬁnancing, mentoring, and support tools for every business stage to aspiring business owners and startup founders
Montreal Founder Institute eligible entrepreneurs have received seed funding from Futurepreneur Canada. Founder Institute is thrilled to have signed this partnership in Montreal to help more young people receive the support they need in a fast and effective way."

All Founders, under the age of 35, who successfully graduate from the program could be eligible for a $15,000 fast-track loan only from Futurpreneur Canada right away at Graduation.

We’re pleased to have the Founder Institute as our first Accelerator partner in the province of Quebec. They have proved to have a world-class start-up and training program, and Futurpreneur Canada is a natural parter to Founder Institute in Montreal."
