Recognized globally as one of Canada’s leading educational institutions, Appleby College develops leaders of character who have a positive impact on their community. Its diverse educational offerings are defined by breadth, excellence, innovation, and caring, and are built on a foundation of world-leading experiential opportunities.
Appleby’s programs range from its core intermediate and secondary school experience - that combines rigorous academics with dynamic arts, athletics, community service, and experiential education – to a portfolio that includes highly regarded summer and March break camp programs, on-campus and digital ESL offerings, academic credit and enrichment courses, and a unique summer experiential and Canadian cultural immersion camp. This expanded portfolio has been developed through Appleby’s Commercial Activities team – perhaps the most robust commercial group operating within an independent school in Canada.
Now, Appleby seeks to further expand its offerings with a new venture that will complement its core products and services. Supported by a committed Innovation Board, the Head, New Venture will seize the opportunity to lead and champion a bold new business from ideation through to successful commercialization. In this newly created role, you will apply your experience of building and launching new businesses. With a unique eye to identifying unmet customer and user needs, you will create, test, and launch a profitable new venture into market, and continue to scale. Over time you will build and lead a high-functioning, agile team to: prototype and incubate, size and validate a new market, design and test a business model, and identify new partners to make it happen.
You may have a background in venture capital, business building and launching as an entrepreneur or intrapreneur, product management, or consulting. Fact-driven, resourceful, and determined, you are hands-on as well as strategic, with an entrepreneurial spirit that propels you forward and inspires others. You are the collaborative problem-solver who identifies and harnesses hidden potential – who turns the unimagined into the indispensable.
Appleby College is committed to fostering an inclusive, equitable, and accessible environment in which everyone feels valued, respected, and supported.
