C100’s Charter Members form a global, mission-driven community of influential and experienced Canadians in technology who are committed to supporting, inspiring, and connecting the most promising Candian entrepreneurial leaders. As leaders who have worked as operators, entrepreneurs and investors (or all three!), C100 Charter Members have been invited to uphold the C100 mission and are active contributors to our program and community.
Vancouver Dinner & Discussion 
C100 hit the road last week to check out CVCA in Vancouver. While there we gathered some Vancouver alumni and members for a lively dinner and discussion. We’re thrilled to be able to spend the evening connecting and sharing ideas with such a fantastic group of passionate members.

Thank you to all who joined us and a very special thanks to the team at McCarthy Tétrault for co-creating this event with us and for hosting us on your spectacular rooftop!
