New Venture Development Scholarship

Pinsky Law New Venture Development Scholarship

Pinsky Law supports, and provides its services to, entrepreneurs and startup companies. This is the reason we developed and maintain the legal resources for startups section on this website. We know that establishing and operating a new venture is challenging and requires commitment of substantial financial resources. Founders of a new venture must be personally and financially committed to their startup business. Many entrepreneurs mortgage their homes, cash RRSP, and use credit cards to finance the initial operations of the new venture. Access to these sources of capital may be critical to the startup, but these resources come at a high emotional and financial cost. To assist driven, up-and-coming, entrepreneurs who are committed to building their startup businesses, we have set up the New Venture Development Scholarship. To apply for the New Venture Development Scholarship please send us, in confidence, in PDF format, a copy of a business plan for your existing or prospective business, along with the information outlined in the scholarship criteria below. Pinsky Law is a business, taxation, and intellectual property law firm, and therefore we require the applicants to include in their business plan a section outlining taxation and intellectual property strategy for their business.
