Two York University students are among the 38 young innovators selected for the 2016 cohort of The Next 36 – Canada’s premiere program for the nation’s most promising entrepreneurs.

Linar Ismagilov (pictured left), a second-year mechanical engineering student, and Zack Fisch (right), an MBA/JD student, were selected as finalists from more than 1,100 applicants to the program.


“Each year the finalist pool seems to gets stronger,” says Peter Carrescia, managing director of The Next 36. “For our 2016 cohort, we sought applications from individuals who were already working on ideas, and the response from the startup community blew us away. We now allow all 38 of our successful finalists to choose their own co-founders, and this additional flexibility has helped us attract more applicants with an existing track record of entrepreneurship than ever before.”
