C100 sending three Montreal companies to California for 48Hrs in the Valley

C100 has announced its 14th cohort of Canadian companies it will be sending to San Francisco for 48Hrs in the Valley. Three Montreal companies made the cut.

Algolux, an AI automation platform that improves image quality tuning of cameras, Vention, which transitioned to open-beta in June, and SmartHalo, whose bike navigation and tracking tool was recently picked up by Apple stores across North America, will all be heading down to the Pacific coast December 5th and 6th.

Twice per year C100 chooses 20 promising Canadian startups to invite to 48Hrs in the Valley to participate in workshops and meet prominent investors. The program is designed to support the organization’s mission to “bring the best of Silicon Valley to accelerate Canada’s innovation economy.

“C100’s 48Hrs in the Valley is an iconic program in Canada’s startup ecosystem, having hosted some of the country’s most promising companies in the past. Algolux is thrilled to be part of this year’s cohort and we look forward to participating alongside other emerging companies and collaborating with renowned mentors and investors,” Allan Benchetrit, President and CEO of Algolux told MTLinTECH.”

Selected companies are introduced to local speakers, C100 Charter Members, corporate partners, and investors. 2017 will feature two days of programming such as peer-to-peer mentorship, breakout sessions, investor meetings, and pitch workshops.

“48Hrs in the Valley is a golden opportunity to meet with people in the VC ecosystem outside of Canada. I think what’s missing here, compared to the Valley, is that there are much less people that have scaled tech companies massively. We’re going to San Francisco to learn from people who have done this before,”Xavier Peich, CEO and Co-founder of SmartHalo told MTLinTECH.

Hundreds of nominations were submitted for this December’s cohort. Out of those hundreds, C100’s Selection Committee selected 20 companies to participate.

The following 20 companies make up this fall’s 48Hrs in the Valley 14th cohort:
