Pinsky Law supports, and provides its services to, entrepreneurs and startup companies. Establishing and operating a new venture is challenging and requires commitment of substantial financial resources. Founders of a new venture must be personally and financially committed to their startup business. Many entrepreneurs mortgage their homes, cash RRSP, and use credit cards to finance the initial operations of the new venture. Access to these sources of capital may be critical to the startup, but these resources come at a high emotional and financial cost.
To assist driven, up-and-coming, entrepreneurs who are committed to building their startup businesses, Pinsky Law Office set up the New Venture Development Scholarship.
