Opportunities for early stage founders

Valley 101

Valley 101 is an intimate event ideal for Canadian founders visiting the Valley for the first time and for those who are looking for an opportunity to connect with C100. We cover topics related to doing business in the U.S. such as immigration, raising U.S. capital and structuring a U.S./Canadian entity. We also share our experiences and insights into living and doing business in the Silicon Valley and the tech community as a whole. If you're starting a company and this is your first time to the Valley, we strongly encourage you to attend one of these events.

Each year, we invite up to 20 of Canada's top startups for 48 hours of unparalleled access to the C100's network in Silicon Valley. In the Valley, the selected startups are mentored by successful entrepreneurs, taught by some of the most influential minds in the ecosystem, and introduced to top American VC's and investors.

“I’ve found the C100 to be one of the most valuable resources and networks out there – especially as a Canadian-based entrepreneur who manages a global business. While the C100 provides a bridge between Silicon Valley and the Canadian tech scene, more importantly they act as a catalyst for innovation here at home.”
