Funding Catalyst Internship

Thin Air Labs is a venture studio igniting venture growth for greater human impact. We invest in seed-stage innovation-based ventures through our venture arm, help ventures succeed with our services team, and nurture the innovation ecosystem through our involvement and influence with community builders and critical ecosystem partners.

Our Funding Catalyst team works closely with high-growth venture founders to help them articulate their vision, develop a capitalization strategy for their growth, and identify and apply for various forms of capital to support it. We are on a mission to be the trusted source for fundraising strategies and execution for ventures across North America. Since its inception, Funding Catalyst has helped companies secure millions in non-dilutive capital, accelerating the growth and development of start-ups in the innovation ecosystem.
