48 Hours in the Valley is a semi-annual highly-selective program that invites some of Canada's most promising startups to the Silicon Valley for over two days of mentorship, workshops, investor meetings, strategic partner visits and networking - all with the purpose of creating a more informed, connected and empowered Canadian startup ecosystem.
The C100’s 48 Hours in The Valley far exceeded my expectations! The highlight was the one-on-one access to top VCs, successful entrepreneurs and tech leaders. I found it incredibly valuable to be plugged into the C100 network and immersed in the Valley culture. -Pressly, June 2014 Alum
