C100 GROWTH SUMMIT
FEBRUARY 5TH & 6TH, 2019
San Francisco, CA
• This is an INVITATION ONLY event •
We asked CEOs and leaders of Canadian growth-stage startup companies, “What is the biggest challenge you face in growing your company?” The answer: Talent
At our 2017 Growth Summit we worked to address the most pressing issues related to talent and culture faced by growth-stage companies. Collectively, CEOs and talent executives challenged one another to think differently and address these issues while learning and sharing best practices with one another. For the first time, C100 has created an event centered around intimate breakout sessions facilitated by peer leaders, placing an emphasis on purposeful peer-to-peer learning.
In 2019, we look forward to expanding on the takeaways from 2017 while recognizing new topics of discussion for growth-stage companies. Stay tuned for more updates.
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. Invited companies are required to be headquartered in Canada, have a minimum of $10M in annual revenue, and maintain high-speed growth trend.
