Recently the Rackspace Startup Program had the opportunity to visit the International Startup Festival in Montreal. It was here that we found out Canada is fast becoming an epicenter for the startup community. Let’s continue our Canadian journey and venture from the province of Quebec to Ontario and the University of Toronto’s The Next 36 program. Touted as Canada’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Initiative, the goal of The Next 36 is to help launch the careers of Canada’s most promising and innovative undergraduates. The program is open to second, third or fourth year students working on their first undergraduate degree. Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada are eligible to apply, and the program accepts students from any university enrolled in any discipline.
