Awards will be split among participants in the New Venture Program (NVP), open to any student across each of the University of Toronto’s three campuses. YES recipients will be invited to participate in an annual YES Entrepreneurial Retreat. In-course awards will be renewable, contingent on participation in the annual YES Entrepreneurial Retreat, as well as continued enrolment in the New Venture Program, to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis through a committee review process. To qualify, students must be eligible to enrol in courses. The program admits approximately 20 students per year. A preference will be made for domestic students, although special consideration can be made for International students. Eligibility for awards will be capped at four years.
NVP entrepreneurs sharpen their analysis, planning and management skills throughout the program. Through access to hands-on resources and support from others who have built rewarding careers as entrepreneurs, students develop best practices for developing and running an early-stage company, and practice the skills needed to build a great business. The program includes the following training modules:
To be considered for admission to the NVP and the YES in-course awards, applicants must have completed one half credit in an introduction to business course (or a suitable equivalent with written approval from the admissions committee), and they are required to submit a letter of interest.
This letter should include the following elements:
Candidates may then be chosen to participate in an interview with members of the admissions committee. Successful candidates will then be notified about their admission into the program.
