"The 0 to 1 that took me into venture."
Matt He, Analyst at Brightspark Ventures (Prev. Intern at White Star Capital, Associate at FounderFuel, Director at FRV)
"While there’s an ocean of VC content online, only FRV’s Blueprint is structured in the 0 to 1 way that outsiders like myself needed to break into venture. This was the first step of the journey into my dream career, and I cannot imagine a better launchpad for students trying to do the same. If you want to explore venture capital, this is the practical guide you’ve been looking for."
"FRV's Blueprint is to VC what BIWS is to investment banking."
Sean McNally, Growth Equity at Georgian (Prev FRV, National Bank).
The program is structured like a tree – the roots and trunk provide the requisite foundational knowledge but is clustered with hundreds of branches available for further detail. This makes it perfect for someone recruiting in venture capital, looking for an edge at their new VC gig, or just curious to learn more about this fascinating space.
"This kicked off my career in venture."
Loïc Souêtre, Venture Capitalist at Panache Ventures (Prev FRV, Fundica).
The venture capital industry is a very opaque universe. FRV unpacks what it takes to be a VC by being on the field, doing deals, but mostly understanding the mindset needed to work with early-stage founders. An investor is an investor, regardless of title or rank. That's the right mindset when you are already in the industry and my experience at Front Row was the perfect introduction.
"Understand what it takes to break into venture capital."

"After a first entrepreneurial experience, the FRV VC Blueprint helped me understand the mindset of venture capitalists. As a student, this learning experience will provide you the tools to navigate this industry full of secrets."
“The best starting point that you can find.”
Nicolas Theriault, Venture Intern at Brightspark (Prev FRV, Round 13).
“The VC Blueprint addresses all the key pillars that you need to know when starting a career in VC. This was a stepping stone to some many amazing opportunities - I could not recommend it enough. You’ll definitely get a great return on your time."
