“I am thrilled to be a part of the C100 as its new Partnership Manager. I can't wait to support our Sponsors and Charter Members to ensure they are getting the most out of their relationship with the C100. I already feel that my self-deprecating, irreverent humor will be well received by the Canadian startup ecosystem."
