C100 Signature Programs


Twice a year, C100 invites approximately 20 of the most promising early-stage Canadian startups as nominated by our Partners and Charter Members for 48Hrs of workshops, mentorship, investor meetings, and networking in the Valley.


48Hrs Alumni Companies


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. These promising companies are invited to spend two days in San Francisco, meeting C100 Charter Members and Partners, networking, and hearing from Silicon Valley thought leaders.
