The 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver had a deep impact on the Canadian psyche and created a brazen, publicly demonstrated drive to "Own the Podium."

That ambition rippled into the Silicon Valley tech community and planted the seeds for the C100 Association, a nonprofit organization that connects Canadian entrepreneurs to the Valley’s most influential Canadians with the explicit mission to help companies win on the global stage.



C100 is a nonprofit member-driven association that provides a bridge between Canadian startup founders and innovative corporations, and the highly influential Silicon Valley network.

Through various programs we provide access to innovative companies, potential partnerships, investors and mentors. C100 Charter Members include some of the most successful Canadians working in some of the most important tech companies in Silicon Valley. They are dedicated to giving back to the community and fostering the next generation of successful Canadian entrepreneurs and innovative companies.
