June 7, 2010

A one-hour Teleforum sponsored by CATAAlliance and its Action Committee on Entrepreneurship (ACE) will take place on Thursday, June 24th at 2:00 p.m. EST.

Pre Register Now, as space is limited.

Background

Successful Canadian executives who are based in California want to help their Canadian colleagues succeed, and have formed a network to pass their knowledge along to their countrymen. In a time when money and resources are in short supply, especially for technology-based firms, being able to tap into special networks is more important than ever. The U.S. market remains the number one geography for expansion.

C100 is comprised of a select group of Canadians based primarily in Silicon Valley, including executives of leading technology companies, experienced start-up entrepreneurs and venture capital investors. C100 members are passionate about leveraging their collective experience, expertise and relationships to help mentor and grow a new generation of successful Canadian-led technology companies.

C100 Charter Members include start-up CEOs, top executives of companies such as Apple, Cisco, EA, eBay, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Oracle, and venture investors representing more than $8 billion in capital.

Chris Albinson, managing director of California-based Panorama Capital LLC, is a venture capitalist widely known in U.S. tech circles for selling his start-up Digital Island to U.K. telecommunications giant Cable & Wireless in 2001 for US$348-million.

Teaming up with his friend Anthony Lee, managing partner of Altos Ventures, they hatched the mentor-ship/ networking group, called the C100.

The well-connected Canucks are opening the doors to valley executives for northern entrepreneurs through a new networking organization, "C100." Building on that foundation, Silicon Valley venture funds are also setting up offices to scout deals in Canada.

Join us for this informative one-hour Teleforum, and find out how to tap into this pool of resources as presented by Chris Albinson, Co-Founder of the C100 Group. There will be ample opportunity for Q & A and to also raise any issues you believe are impeding U.S/Canada business growth.

Who should attend?
Anyone involved in obtaining partnership capital, acquiring cash or increasing business growth though collaborations for Canadian advanced technology enterprises.
