Community Sift Selected to Attend C100 “48 Hours in the Silicon Valley”

Community Sift is pleased to have been selected as one of Canada’s top 20 startup companies invited to be a part of C100 “48 Hours in the Valley”. This semi-annual mentorship program offers unparalleled access to programming, mentorship and networking in the Silicon Valley.

The C100 is a non-profit, member driven association that supports Canadian technological companies through partnership, mentorship and investment. The C100 members are “some of the most influential minds in the ecosystem including some top VC's, investors and entrepreneurs who are passionate about leveraging their experience, expertise and relationships.” During this event, the C100 members will help connect, mentor and grow Canadian innovative companies. The goal is a more connected, informed and empowered Canadian startup community.

“The market has never been so keen on finding a solution for cyberbullying and online harassment and the Valley is the place to be”

“This event comes at a perfect time for us. The market has never been so keen on finding a solution for cyberbullying and online harassment and the Valley is the place to be,” says Community Sift’s CEO, Chris Priebe.

“We already have incredible traction and have made an impression but being able to be a part of this event should blow the top off of what we are doing. Coincidentally during this event, we will be launching our series A and adding $5M to help solve many online chat issues including that of Cyberbullying.”

The theme of the December 2015 event is “Business Development and Growth” where Community Sift, along with the other selected companies, will have the opportunity to:

  • Receive mentorship from the C100 members and partner networks
  • Meet with high profile VCs and other potential investors
  • Build our connection to the startup community in the Silicon Valley
  • Network with other Canadian startups in similar growth stages
