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!

Anzac Day is the day all Australians come together in remembrance. But this year we’ll have to come together in spirit, instead of in person. We can all still keep the Anzac spirit alive and honour our veterans and service members from the safety of our own homes.
Here are some activities you and your family can get involved in this Anzac Day.


National Commemorative Service
Saturday 25 April 2020
5.30 am

For the first time in its history, the Dawn Service will not be attended by members of the public. Instead you can stream the Ceremony from your home.


As we commemorate #AnzacAtHome this year there are many ways you can be involved.
We have activities for remembering with kids, mates and veterans.


Explore our interactive poppy field and leave messages of thanks for those who have served.


This year, in lieu of a veterans march we are asking you to share photos of the  medals you wear on Anzac Day to create a virtual collection of medals. Share your picture to social media using #ShowYourMedals.


Show your appreciate for our veterans and service members this Anzac Day by becoming part of the #ForTheFallen online tribute.
Simply record a short video of you or a family member reciting The Ode and upload it to social media with the hashtag #ForTheFallen.


From arts and crafts to cooking and educational resources there are plenty of ways you can commemorate Anzac Day and create lasting memories for the whole family.


There are thousands of memorials across the country that stand as a reminder of the service and sacrifice Australians have made for us. While we can’t visit them in person this Anzac Day, you can visit them online via the Places of Pride website.  The website will feature a live stream at dawn of memorials across a number of Australian capital cities.
If you have a photo of your local memorial upload it to to help us build the national register.


From the famous biscuits to the gunfire breakfast and bully beef, we asked chef and restaurateur Matt Moran for his take on some traditional Anzac Day dishes.


Upload a photo or video to social media with the hashtag #AnzacAtHome and encourage others to do the same.
