Canadians Leading from Far and Wide
GROWTH SUMMIT is an invitation-only two-day (un)conference for C100 Members and CXOs of high-growth startups. C100’s Summit will amplify the voices of Canadian shapers and builders "from far and wide."
Growth Summit will highlight the stories of Canada's growth-stage technology companies to a global audience to draw as a source of inspiration and a call-to-action to position Canada as the emerging home of entrepreneurship.
Bringing together all C100 Members
Join fellow members and Canadian thought leaders to be inspired, build your professional network, and make meaningful peer connections.
All attendees are expected to contribute, whether in larger plenary format or in small peer-to-peer group settings. Canadian leaders will get exposure to an engaged expat community based in Silicon Valley eager to contribute to and be inspired by “Canada’s moment.”
