Daniel Oshodin

MTEI Student - Saint Mary's University
Venture Grade is an awesome platform for a budding entrepreneur and an aspiring investor. I am inspired by the learning experience provided by the fund, especially with regards to valuation, risk assessment, portfolio management, exit analysis and a career in venture capital and private equity investment.

MBA Student - Saint Mary's University
Venture Grade has been a highlight of my program, and one of the most valuable learning experiences. It has provided me with the opportunity to create valuable connections and expand my network within the Halifax entrepreneurial ecosystem. Venture Grade also empowers you to think and act like a business professional, leading to lessons you simply won’t learn from a textbook.

Joining Venture Grade has been the most impactful decision I've made during my degree. The connections, knowledge, and skills you learn gives you the ability to stand out among your peers and in some cases like my own, create your own business with them.
