C100 Supporting Canadian Entrepreneurs

program_logo 48hrs in the Valley

48hrs in the Valley is the C100's flagship mentorship program put on in conjunction with the Canadian Consulate of San Francisco and Palo Alto.

The C100 is replacing this Fall’s 48 Hours in the Valley with a strategic review of the organization and our programming. We will develop a three-year strategic plan as we think about the next phase for the C100 and how we can best support Canadian entrepreneurs. We will continue with 48 Hours in the Valley in the summer of 2015.

In the meantime, we want to connect with you! Please check out our list of upcoming events and explore additional ways to get involved with the C100 below.
