C100 Unveils the 15 Startups Heading to US for 48hrs in the Valley This June

The C100 is hosting the next crop of top Canadian technology startups at 48hrs in the Valley. Held June 16 and 17, the event gives a select group of Canadian startups access to networking, mentoring, and business growth opportunities in Silicon Valley.

This edition of 48hrs in the Valley represents the first invite-only one. C100 charter members, sponsors, and partners, along with 48hrs alumni, were asked to nominate promising Canadian startups.

A small number of tickets are available to the public for several sessions.

“While a strong entrepreneurial and tech community is building across Canada, Canadian startups still need the connections and expertise of Silicon Valley to get to the next level,” said Atlee Clark, Executive Director of the C100. “48hrs gives these entrepreneurs the resources needed to build the next billion-dollar Canadian technology company.”

June’s event will include sessions from Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and investors:

  • Gokul Rajaram, Product Engineering Lead at Square

  • Don Mattrick, CEO at Zynga

  • Lars Leckie, Managing Director at Hummer Winblad Venture Partners

48hrs in the Valley is a biannual event and the upcoming group will be the ninth to participate. Here are the companies joining the C100 for 48hrs in the Valley:
