C100 Newsletter: 48Hrs | Events | ourstories

From one of our fellow Canadian organizations here in the Bay area.

48Hrs in the Valley is one of our most anticipated events of the year and we’re so proud to be supporting this accomplished cohort of Canadian founders.

This June 18th to 20th, C100 will be hosting 21 of Canada’s fastest-growing startups today, in San Francisco and Menlo Park, to learn from and work with our incredible community of successful entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and corporate executives on best practices, thought leadership, scaling and more.

In addition to this incredible group of Canadian founders, we’re excited to announce our 48Hrs speaker line up below as well. 48Hrs is truly made possible thanks to the generosity of these individuals as well as our sponsors, charter members and C100 community members.  Thank you!

Performance enhancers and the military: The new arms race

Performance enhancers and the military:
The new arms race

Story by Stephen J. Thorne

A global arms race is simmering, only this one does not involve robots, nuclear weapons, laser beams or other futuristic gadgets. Rather, these rivals are trying to outdo one another in an age-old quest to extend the limits of the human body.

Militaries around the world, Canada’s included, are testing supplements, stimulants and other performance-enhancing substances. Some—not Canada—are even considering using steroids and hormones to create so-called super-soldiers.

Tank piercer

Story by Sharon Adams

Not all Panzer battles in the Second World War featured tanks duking it out or dodging artillery fire. Many of the big machines were destroyed by infantry. Ernest (Smokey) Smith’s Victoria Cross action at the Savio River in northern Italy in October 1944 began with him disabling a Panther from nine metres away with a Projector, Infantry, Anti-Tank (PIAT) weapon.

This Week in History

June 12-13, 1944

Pilot Officer Andrew Mynarski’s aircraft is hit by enemy fire. Flying Officer Pat Brophy is trapped in the rear turret, so Mynarski ignores orders to abandon the aircraft and attempts but is unable to rescue Brophy. With his parachute and clothing in flames, Mynarski bails out. He is found by the French but later dies from the burns. Brophy survives the crash and Mynarski is awarded the Victoria Cross.

June 24: SF Pride Parade 2018 – Friends of Canada and Mexico March (San Francisco)

Hosted By: Canadian and Mexican Consulates


Dear Canadians and Friends of Canada,

Prime Minister Trudeau reaffirmed that no matter who we love or how we identify, all of us deserve to feel safe and secure, live free from discrimination and persecution, and express ourselves fully.

We must continue to fight against homophobia, transphobia, and biphobia, and to defend gender expression, gender identity and sexual orientation rights.  I am personally committed to fight hatred, honour love, and defend human rights for all.

It is in this spirit that I would like to invite you to join me to march together in the  San Francisco Pride parade on Sunday June 24th.

Please note the link here for the invitation/RSVP.  Please forward to your Canadian friends!

The march will begin around 11:00am, at the Embarcadero, and will end at San Francisco City Hall, at around 14:00.  Please join me, and together, we can build a world where all of us are free to be who we are and love who we love.

Dress comfortably, colourfully, bring your friends, family, your dogs…and your bottle of water.  The exact departure point will be communicated very soon – look for Canadian rainbow flags.

For the first time this year, we will be joining the Mexican Consulate as a demonstration of North American solidarity!

Looking forward to meeting you!

Consul General
