WeirFoulds Proud to Continue to Support Toronto Startups through Silicon Valley-Based Founder Institute

JANUARY 27, 2016

WeirFoulds is proud to continue to support Toronto's thriving startup community for a fourth session of Founder Institute – Toronto Chapter. The firm partners with Founder Institute to provide valuable legal advice to program participants, drawing on our extensive expertise assisting entrepreneurs and high-growth companies in all areas of corporate and securities law.

Raj Dewan, corporate partner at WeirFoulds, who acts as a mentor to the Toronto Chapter and legal advisor, commented, "It's extremely rewarding to assist entrepreneurs based in Toronto to build a solid foundation for a business that allows them to realize their dreams. WeirFoulds is proud to continue to partner with Founder Institute. It is rewarding to contribute to the rigorous, comprehensive, and company-building curriculum they provide."

WeirFoulds frequently works with entrepreneurs and owner-operators in high growth markets to support their business objectives. We find our combination of personal service, our pragmatic approach and transparent accountability is highly valued. We are recognized for our strength in mid-market, corporate and private equity/venture capital, and are organized in a business model very similar to many of our clients who are looking for responsive, cost-effective and comprehensive legal services. Our billing model is far more flexible than most of our downtown competitors, and we steadfastly believe that combining innovation, creativity and the know-how of our lawyers with their business and negotiating acumen, generates outstanding service that our clients appreciate.

Based in Silicon Valley, Founder Institute is the world's largest entrepreneur training and startup launch program. Since launching in July 2014, the Toronto chapter of Founder Institute has helped create 40 new tech companies.
