C100 Announces 17 Startups Selected for 48Hrs in the Valley

48Hrs in the Valley is C100’s signature program for mentoring, connecting and inspiring Canada’s most promising startup entrepreneurs. This year’s theme, “Capital Matters: Human. Financial. Social,” will focus on the three main principles founders are encouraged to understand in relation to raising, growing and leveraging different forms of capital in order to succeed on the global stage.

“Our goal with the 48Hrs program is to help startups from across Canada understand just how high the bar is, in order to succeed in a competitive market like Silicon Valley,” said Terry Doyle, Co Chair of the C100. “We hope that we provide each 48Hrs cohort with the skills and connections to return to Canada and build world class companies.”

This year, C100 created its Ambassador Program in an effort to leverage Canadian connections with close ties to startup communities across the country. These individuals have referred the most promising companies from each major metropolitan region in addition to nominations from sponsors and partners.

The C100 is pleased to announce the following companies as the 48Hrs in the Valley 2016 Summer cohort:

Collectively, these companies have raised over C$75 million in private funding to date and employ an average of 20 employees per company.
