The C100, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting Canadian technology entrepreneurship and investment, especially in Silicon Valley, has turned two.
During the past two years, the C100 has gained more than 100 charter members in Silicon Valley and 2,500 other members across North America. Over 3,000 entrepreneurs have attended 30 events, and nearly 100 startups have participated in C100 mentoring. More than $400 million has been invested as a result of C100 programs, the organization says.
In these two years, we've assembled an outstanding group of 100+ members who have dedicated their expertise, time and networks to accelerating the top Canadian-led companies and raising the expectations for a generation of Canadian entrepreneurs.
We have hosted more than a hundred companies at our flagship 48hrs in the Valley and CEO Forum events here in the Valley, and interacted with thousands of entrepreneurs at GROW, Accelerate and other events across Canada.
Our members have logged millions of air miles, criss-crossing the 49th to work with companies back home.
