The C100 continues to grow with hiring our first Canadian Co-op student! Linette Ho will be taking on the role of Marketing and Events Co-op at the C100. Linette is from Vancouver and studies at the Sauder School of Business from the University of British Columbia.
At school, Linette has worn all sorts of hats - Blogger, Editor, Event Planner, Teaching Assistant and Corporate Relations Director. Linette was involved in her school community – from running her faculty newspaper executing web and print editorial work, “The Cavalier” as the Editor-in-Chief, to taking on the Corporate Relations Funding for the Commerce Undergraduate Society, which is the largest business school organization in Canada. She also kick started the “Humans of Sauder” campaign, inspired by the original Humans of New York. The campaign includes a collection of portraits showcasing the many faces and stories of her faculty.
During her first Co-op work term this past summer, she worked at Left of the Dot Media as a Business Analyst. She created video content as well as worked with funding initiatives within the company. This introduction to the world of Canadian technology start-ups and venture capitalists kick-started her interest and curiosity of the industry.
Linette is an artist who loves to create through her photography, painting, and baking. She can also be found trekking up a mountain or running through trails. Linette is excited to jump into anything that San Francisco offers, and to cross the bridge from Canadian startup to The C100 Association.
