List of first fund VCs | Join us Wednesday with Jeff Booth

A newsletter from one of our fellow Canadian organizations in the Bay Area.

Hi C100 Community Member,

For the past month, C100 has pivoted our programming and hosted a weekly series of Virtual Roundtables to be a support and resource to our community during this crisis – we hope you’ve been able to join us! Topics covered have included: managing your team in a crisis, access and approach to capital and adapting your business plan.

To provide additional support, we published a piece on Medium that synthesizes the takeaways and tools shared with us for your reference here. Included in the piece is a compiled a list of VCs who’ve recently raised a first fund that founders may find be helpful in fundraising efforts.

We’re also excited to announce the next few weeks of programming led by C100 Members and Charter Members and welcome you to register and join us.

See you online soon!

Laura & The C100 Team
