Building a successful career is one of the biggest challenges most of us young professionals face, generally speaking of course, but building your own successful company can seem downright impossible. Montreal is booming right now with motivated and innovative startups all looking to make a mark on their way to becoming the next big thing. To do so, it takes a whole lot of elbow grease, sheer determination, and of course, money.
Right now, Momentum Ventures are seeking high-end and young business professionals to coach and direct towards businesses they believe they could excel in as part of their Momentum Ventures Challenge.
Momentum Ventures is a technology company based in Montreal who has specialized in building winning businesses since 2007. Instead of the traditional shotgun-spray approach to finding startups that so often fails, Momentum Ventures consider themselves more as anti-venture capital, choosing to work on their own terms and with their own team rather then simply patent-hunting.
By outlining both your business and personal successes, the Momentum Ventures Challenge is all about investing in your potential as an entrepreneur and designed to see if you fit the profile of a strong business leader to join the team.
The selected candidate would receive a full-time, salaried position at Momentum Ventures, a minimum 500K investment, and access to Momentum Ventures’ robust support and mentorship system. Everything you need to not only have a potentially life-changing career, but also the chance to essentially run your own company.
