C100 Icon of Canadian Entrepreneurship Award
Each year, C100 awards an “Icon of Canadian Entrepreneurship” (ICE) for their impact on the world of technology and on the Canadian entrepreneurial community. This year on August 27th, the award was given to Co-founder and COO ofCloudflare– Michelle Zatlyn! With Cloudflare, Michelle is leading the charge to make the internet faster, safer, and more reliable – and doing so at a pivotal moment where public concern and scrutiny about cybersecurity is at an all-time high. To honour Michelle, C100’s Charter Members convened for dinner and a fireside chat. Read more on Michelle and her story from the night. 
Founder Feature
At the ICE Award, Michelle spoke of Cloudflare’s early days and her humble beginnings. Michelle attributes Cloudflare’s success to her and her Co-Founder Matthew Prince’s high rate of learning and approaching opportunities with a growth mindset. Along with adapting quickly to new jobs thrown at you as a founder, what is Michelle’s advice to entrepreneurs?
“Always show up and work hard. I was lucky but I can understand how founders can be challenged- amongst each other, with their investors, and with their Board. I advise people that you are the sum of your decisions and who you surround yourself with.”
