Founder’s Fund

By mmuise

The Founders Fund supports Mount Royal University (MRU) student founders in testing and growing their idea by removing financial barriers to exploring their business.

Comments on Funding:

Funding is up to $2,500.
If funds are granted and the business is owned by multiple students, the funds will either be distributed to the student pitching or divided amongst those with a significant ownership stake.

Deadline: Applications are closed. The program will reopen in February 2024.

Applicants must:

  • be full-time or part-time MRU students in good standing registered in a degree program at Mount Royal University (note: Open Studies students do not qualify).
  • own a meaningful ownership position and have an active leadership role in the proposed venture. A “meaningful ownership position” generally means 20% or more of the venture, not including financial investors.
