Applications open for C100′s 48 Hours in the Valley
August 27, 2012 in Startup
Hamilton-area startups should consider applying to the C100 (@C100) 48 Hours in the Valley program this Fall. The C100 is a non-profit volunteer-driven organization that was created in 2010 by a group of Canadians who have found success in Silicon Valley and are now looking to help the next-generation of Canadians grow their own startups more successfully. The C100 uses a combination of mentorship programs and events to connect Canadian entrepreneurs to their own members for mentorship, connections and investment.
Watch the video below for a quick rundown on the C100:
The C100 organizes a program called 48 Hours in the Valley where twice a year 20 Canadian startups are invited to Silicon Valley for two days of mentorship, workshops, investor meetings, strategic partner visits and networking. You can read about Calgary startup Hubblr’s experience with the program on TechVibes here and Vancouver startup LemonadeStand’s experience here. The next 48 Hours in the Valley will be taking place November 12-14, 2012. The deadline to apply is September 21st, 2012. They are looking for startups with:
- product in market
- huge growth potential
I think this is a great opportunity for Hamilton-area startups to build key connections in the center of the technology industry. Even if now isn’t the time, 48 Hours in the Valley is a great program for startups to keep in mind for the future.
