We think it’s a place where talent investing can make a huge impact. We believe that a disproportionate share of the next decade’s deep tech giants will be built in Canada and we want to play a major role in giving the most talented and ambitious individuals the framework they need to succeed.
We’re excited to have François Le Nguyen leading the charge in Toronto as General Manager. François has been a lynchpin of the Entrepreneur First team in Singapore for the last two years. In his role as Form Lead, he’s worked with hundreds of founders and helped build some of our most exciting companies. Previously, François was an early Product Manager at Lightspeed HQ, which had its IPO earlier this year and became one of a growing group of Canadian unicorns. Having grown up and worked in Canada before, François has an incredible network to draw on, in order to build our next location.
“I’m grateful and thrilled to be leading EF’s next expansion into one of the most exciting talent ecosystems I have the privilege of calling home,” François said, “If you’re a scientist, an entrepreneur, an aspiring founder, an investor, an ecosystem builder or anyone who wants to see Talent matched with the right opportunity, I’d love to hear from you.”
EF Toronto will open in early 2020, using the same model that has proved successful in London, Singapore, Berlin, Paris, Hong Kong and Bangalore.
We’re already excited about the exceptional people we’ll get to work with and the extraordinary things that they’ll build. If you’d like to be part of it, apply now.
