C100 Programs

Fellows: For Founders in Early Stages (<$5M in revenue)

The C100 Fellows Program, which begins with our flagship 48Hrs event in Silicon Valley, empowers early-stage Canadian founders through mentorship and a strong community of like-minded entrepreneurs who share our belief that Canada can produce category-defining companies. This program is for founders who are looking to surround themselves with other top founders and thrive on community engagement, insight sharing, and continuous learning amongst leading technology leaders.
Growth: For Scale-stage Companies


C100 Growth is for fast-growing companies which have the potential to become global category leaders. These companies often have raised Series A or B funding and project a revenue run rate of $10 million or more by the end of 2024. 


This new program–no fees, no equity–provides twelve months of comprehensive support for high-growth companies with customized mentoring, in-person and online workshops that address common scaling challenges, role-based peer groups, and access to an extensive ecosystem of global-scaling experts.


Fellows 2022 Applications Open

The C100 Fellows Program empowers Canada’s most promising early-stage founders as they build category-defining companies in Canada.


The annual fellowship provides these high-potential entrepreneurs with unparalleled access to world-class mentorship and a risk-embracing community of like-minded builders. The program features two immersive experiences in the Bay Area - called “48Hrs in the Valley” - where Fellows are exposed to the Silicon Valley mindset and mentoring with C100’s network of the best Bay Area entrepreneurs, operators, and investors. This unprecedented programming is reinforced throughout the year by additional in-person and online gatherings featuring leading technology figures, designed to foster continuous support and engagement within the cohort.


C100 Fellows leave the program empowered, enriched, and inspired to become global leaders and make a meaningful impact on society.

Founder Details











This is your chance to bring your written application to life and let us know the real person behind the startup. Through a short video, share with us why you believe C100 is the catalyst for your growth as a founder and how the Fellows Program can help elevate your company.
Founder Video
Begin your 2-minute video with a warm introduction to yourself or your founding team, showcasing your company's mission succinctly. In the remaining time, address two of the following prompts that resonate most with you:
  • Current Needs & Challenges: What are your most pressing needs as a founder? Share the challenges that keep you up at night and how you are addressing them.
  • Motivation to join the Fellowship: Why is this the right time for you to join the 2024 Fellows cohort? Convey your reasons and what you aim to achieve through the program.
  • Contribution to the Community: If selected, what unique skills or experiences would you bring to the cohort? Describe the superpower you can offer to elevate the collective experience of your fellow founders.

Additional Guidelines:
  1. Ensure your video is no longer than 2 minutes; concise and impactful insights are valued.
  2. Speak directly into the camera—we want to connect with you, not a script. Select a quiet environment to ensure audio clarity. Do not worry about production value; we're interested in your content, not your editing skills.
  3. When uploading your video, services like YouTube, Vimeo, or Loom links (setting it to 'Unlisted') are preferred.


Help us understand your product, your users, why it is important to them, and the impact it will make. We’re keen to understand the long-term vision for your company and the leaders on your founding team.
