C100, a nonprofit organization supporting Canadians working in Silicon Valley, announced the 17 startups that have made it into its 48 Hours in the Valley program.

The program brings Canadian startups to the valley for two days of mentorship, networking opportunities, speaking engagements, and investor meetings. This year’s theme for the program is called Capital Matters: Human. Financial. Social. According to C100, these are the three main principles founders are encouraged to understand in relation to raising, growing, and leveraging different forms of capital in order to succeed on the global stage.

“Our goal with the 48Hrs program is to help startups from across Canada understand just how high the bar is, in order to succeed in a competitive market like Silicon Valley,” said Terry Doyle, co-chair of the C100. “We hope that we provide each 48Hrs cohort with the skills and connections to return to Canada and build world class companies.”
