unparalleled access TO SILICON VALLEY

Empowering Canada’s most promising early-stage founders as they build category-defining companies.


The C100 Fellows program provides  Canada’s highest-potential entrepreneurs with unparalleled access to world-class mentorship and a risk-embracing community of like-minded builders. The program features two immersive experiences in the Bay Area - called “48Hrs in the Valley” - where Fellows are exposed to the Silicon Valley mindset and mentoring with C100’s network consisting of the best Bay Area entrepreneurs, operators, and investors.

C100 Fellows leave the program empowered, enriched and inspired to become global leaders and make a meaningful impact on society.

“Being part of C100's Fellowship means you’re never alone on your entrepreneurial journey. From immersion at 48Hrs in the Valley, to continuous interactions with fellow founders, including learnings, insights and mentoring from C100's global membership, every moment is about gaining actionable insights and building relationships that support personal and professional growth. It’s an essential program for any founder looking to scale globally and make a significant impact.”
