C100's Chris Albinson on the Mecca of Tech

Posted by Rob Lewis

In October Techvibes was fortunate to be invited to the C100's 48 Hours in the Valley event and while we were there we had a chance to interview a handful of C100 members. This week the C100 begun publishing a handful of interviews with Canadian technology entrepreneurs conducted by Techvibes' Michelle Sklar. 

First up was UpTake's Yen Lee and yesterday C100 Founder and Co-chair Chris Albinson of Panorama Capital shared his story.

Hear about how the C100 came to be, why the Silicon Valley is the "Mecca of Tech" and why Canadian companies can help their companies grow bigger and smarter by getting connected with the Valley. Also, Chris reveals his two favorite Canadian entrepreneurs and which companies he thinks might be the "next big thing".

Be sure to subscribe to the C100 blog or follow them on Twitter as they will be releasing more videos over the coming weeks as well as announcing a next batch of interviews for 2011.
