Front Row Ventures is a Montreal-based venture capital firm that is student-centered and backed by Real Ventures. It also has a location in Ontario, Canada. University students are the partners of the companies and they seek start-ups that are run by other university students. It makes early-stage investments of $25,000 in companies in technology. Specific products and services that the firm has invested in include business software, diagnostic equipment, education and training services, and more.
In March 2019, Front Row Ventures launched its Women Founders' Project, which is dedicated to closing the gender diversity gap in venture capital in Canada. The project offers workshops that are designed to educate current students or recent graduates who are female-identifying about the essentials to founding and running a start-up company.
