Canadian companies partner up in Silicon Valley

Posted by Liam Britten

Michael J. Fox, Dan Aykroyd, Mike Myers, and the late, great, Leslie Nielson are all examples of Canadians who have left the Great White North to find their fortunes under the California sun. And while these examples all left to follow artistic pursuits, tech entrepreneurs are no different; Silicon Valley has always been a Mecca for high tech companies, and thanks to The C100, an industry organization that helps Canadian companies thrive in Silicon Valley, two Canadian-owned companies are teaming up for mutual success.

Those two companies are MoboVivo and ShinyArt, a streaming video company and a video art company, respectively. They are planning a global video art distribution platform using MoboVivo’s cloud-based myScreens system to distribute ShinyArt’s video art to installations in public spaces like hospitals, hotels and restaurants worldwide. ShinyArt and MoboVivo plan to monetize the partnership through licensing art sold to installations.

This partnership wouldn’t have happened without The C100, the organization that introduced the two companies. The C100 organizes networking events open to both Canadian and American companies with the objective of finding opportunities for Canadian businesses operating in the Bay Area. As well, they provide mentorship and connections with investors, both angel and VC.
