LONDON, 22nd August 2013 — In 2010, a group of ultra-successful Silicon Valley business people from Canada discovered a mutual desire to support the next generation of Canadian entrepreneurs and help build the next billion-dollar Canadian Tech Company. The C100 was born.

The C100 is a non-profit, member-driven organization that supports Canadian technology entrepreneurship through mentorship, partnership and investment. In just the past three years the group has helped to secure in excess of $560M in funding for some of the world’s most exciting tech startups through a series of events and mentoring programs. The C100 has worked with highly successful companies such as Kiip, Layer7, Kik, HootSuite in addition to many others.

Its hugely successful 48 Hours in the Valley event has become the stuff of industry legend, and on 25th September 2013 the C100 UK is launching its first ever 48 Hours in London. The event will bring together the cream of the UK’s tech and VC sectors with the next generation of technology startups from Canada. Selected speakers include: Sherry Coutu, serial entrepreneur and Angel Investor, Leonard Brody, entrepreneur, Venture Capitalist, author and media visionary, Shelley Kuipers, Founder / CEO of Chaordix, and Darin Brown, President, Europe at Crispin Porter & Bogusky.
