A year of curated, exclusive connections with the people shaping the most innovative companies in the world.
C100's annual Fellowship empowers 20 of Canada’s most promising early-stage founders through mentorship with the world’s most innovative companies
and immersion into a strong community of like-minded entrepreneurs who share our belief in the power of innovation to create positive change.
Fellows alumni attribute a component of their success to the intensive mentorship, high-calibre networking, and venture guidance attained through the fellowship.
“It is inspiring being surrounded by driven entrepreneurs that raised the bar for me. I appreciated how transparent people were when sharing their challenges and was able to leverage their learnings into smart decisions for my company. My C100 association has translated into a prestige that will be valuable during fundraising.”
Félix Bélisle Dockrill
CEO and Co-Founder, Axya
After the C100 Fellows selection in June, each founder will be paired with a group of hand-selected mentors made up of leading growth-stage founders and expert operators.
Founders will meet regularly with the other Fellows in their cohort and engage in dedicated peer-to-peer sessions.
The Fellowship’s flagship event, 48Hrs, features two days of intensive mentorship, high-calibre networking, and venture guidance in the Valley.
C100 Fellows alumni have learned to push further and achieve the impossible.
This year’s cohort comprises 22 notable early-stage companies across deep tech, SaaS, healthcare tech, ed-tech, marketplace, energy, ag-tech, and wellness sectors.
These founders, who were selected from a pool of hundreds of nominees, have the potential to shape the future of the entire Canadian tech ecosystem.
