C100 is looking for an energetic, detail-oriented, entrepreneur-loving person to join C100 as a 4- or 8-month intern in San Francisco, beginning in May 2019. Each year we host some of Canada and the Silicon Valley’s hottest entrepreneurs, investors and executives at events in the San Francisco/Silicon Valley area. Our goal? To bring the best of Silicon Valley to help accelerate Canada’s innovation economy
C100 is a non-profit, member-driven association of Canadian thought leaders in the San Francisco Bay Area with a mission to "Accelerate Canada's Innovation Economy." We hope to inspire the most promising Canadian entrepreneurs to build the next generation of successful companies in Canada by providing mentorship, connections and thought leadership.
C100 members are passionate about leveraging their collective experience, expertise and relationships to help mentor and grow a new generation of successful Canadian-led technology companies.
This Internship will support C100's entrepreneurs through curated program initiatives, offering business analysis, operations and data analysis during the 4-8-month term.
A major objective of our program is to introduce our intern to the Silicon Valley technology industry and bridge it back to the Canadian technology industry. We hope that through the projects we have set up that a successful intern will return to Canada with an excellent toolkit of skills to apply to the Canadian workforce as well as deep knowledge of the Silicon Valley ecosystem. The goals and objectives for this term include extensive program analysis, event logistics management, on-site program support, marketing campaign analysis, and technical data sorting and analysis.
Our office and the majority of our programs are located in Downtown San Francisco, so the intern will be immersed in the culture of the city as well as the rich ecosystem of the broader Silicon Valley region. Additionally, our location in the Bay Area allows for easy exploration of one of the most iconic parts of the United States.
