Note this up-coming online event from one of our fellow Canadian organizations in the Bay Area.
Hi C100 community member,
Relentlessly Pursuing the Mission in Trying Times
Last week, C100 proudly announced our latest cohort of 26 early-stage Canadian startups to 48Hrs in the Valley, C100’s signature program that aims to support and inspire the next generation of Canadian success stories through mentorship, thought-partnership, and venture guidance.
While this event was scheduled to be held in the Bay Area on May 20-21, 2020, due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, C100 is postponing the event to October 6-7, 2020, and looks forward to welcoming this cohort to the Bay Area in the fall. The necessary postponement of our Spring events calendar has given us the opportunity to examine how we can deepen our delivery on our mission “to support, inspire, and connect the most promising Canadian entrepreneurial leaders.” Read our take on why supporting Canadian entrepreneurs is more urgent than ever.
Thank you and stay well,
The C100 Team
48Hrs in the Valley 2020 Cohort
Over the last few weeks, all of you have seen your worlds shift drastically. What was once a period of immense growth and opportunity has now morphed into the first economic downturn many will ever have to face. As we all work to understand what the future holds, we do know one thing: we’re in this together. So in the spirit of deepening community connections and collectively navigating a new normal we’d welcome you to join us and fellow C100 leaders for a series of virtual roundtables for discussions and advice on leading through the pandemic.
Our previous virtual roundtables included topics such as team crisis management as well as access and approach to capital. If you missed them, you can watch them here.
Upcoming Virtual Roundtable Topic & Registration
April 15th @ 9:30AM PT/12:30PM ET
Topic: What GPs Need to Know About BDC’s New Capital Bridge Financing Program – COVID-19 Relief for Startups
Join for an exclusive session with Jérôme Nycz (EVP, BDC Capital) as he shares details on how GPs can leverage BDC’s new matching program to extend runway to Canadian startups.
More dates/topics to be announced soon!
