Your Introduction to Silicon Valley


Valley 101 is a great starting point for Canadian entrepreneurs hoping to get 1:1 access to a Silicon Valley investor. We initiate conversations surrounding important topics such as:

  • Accelerators, incubators and programs available
  • Information on C100 programs for early and growth-stage entreprenerus
  • Funding trends and tips
  • Guidance and feedback on pitches from successful investors
  • Peer to peer evaluation from similar, early-stage startups

Valley 101 is also an introduction to the C100 network. Attendees have the opportunity to meet the executive team of the C100 as well as charter members, mentors and investors. This is one of the most beneficial programs for getting involved with the C100.

[Valley 101] was one of the most informative sessions we had during our 2 ½ week trip down to the Valley! ... Since we had just recently crossed the border, and were wondering how to handle further crossings in the future, [James Mayock’s presentation on VISA status] really helped clarify our Visa options ... and [Comcast Venture’s Laurence Toney’s talk on venture funding] really helped to provide information on what VCs in the valley are looking for
