C100 GROWTH SUMMIT
TALENT & CULTURE
OCTOBER 17TH & 18TH, 2017
San Francisco, CA
• This is an INVITATION ONLY event •
We asked CEOs and leaders of Canadian growth-stage startup companies, “What is the biggest challenge you face in growing your company?” The answer: Talent
The 2017 Growth Summit will address the most pressing issues related to talent and culture faced by growth-stage companies today. Collectively, CEOs and talent executives will challenge one another to think differently and address these issues while learning and sharing best practices with one another. For the first time, C100 has created an event centered around intimate breakout sessions facilitated by peer leaders, placing an emphasis on purposeful peer-to-peer learning.
Previously called "CEO Summit", Growth Summit is a private event for CEOs of Canadian growth-stage technology companies plus one core member of their leadership team. Invited companies are required to be headquartered in Canada, have a minimum of $10M in annual revenue, and maintain high-speed growth trend.
