The C100 team is growing! We are very excited to welcome Andee Gardiner as our new Marketing Manager. Andee brings a wealth of knowledge in community building and public relations to the organization, not to mention a huge passion for startups.
Andee has a strong background in consulting, working with technical teams and helping startups and small companies accelerate and scale with ease. She gained experience in promotions and global marketing while completing part of her undergraduate studies in Paris. Upon graduation she moved to Washington D.C. to work at LivingSocial, where she worked extensively with small businesses to develop strategic marketing plans to raise brand awareness and drive revenue.
Andee has since become fully immersed into the tech scene in New York, D.C. and Silicon Valley. When she’s not attending tech-related events or traveling, you’ll likely find her doing yoga somewhere in San Francisco or cooking dinner with her friends.
Beginning day one, Andee began tackling some of our most visible and important projects for the C100, drawing from her past experience and creative thinking. Andee has already proven that she does not shy away from a daunting task, and that will come in handy with the number of programs and new initiatives that are under development and underway!
Andee lives by the principle that she is always in permanent “beta”, with room for improvement and an unending desire to learn, grow and give back. “I believe that people are innately good and that great people surround themselves with other genuine, wonderful human beings. I find fulfillment in connecting with those people, constantly improving and evaluating every moment in life is imperative in order to find long-term happiness.”
In 2014, Andee started an organization called Menteed, built on the belief that mentorship and community should be developed purposefully and that genuine relationships are created organically through experience. She is very excited to offer Silicon Valley-based support and guidance to Canadian entrepreneurs and startup founders. Her passion for mentorship, startups, technology and marketing align perfectly with the C100 vision and she’s thrilled to give back and help the organization and Canadian entrepreneurs thrive.
