Cultivator was invited to C100’s annual summit in February, where we made memorable connections with top Canadian founders and tech executives.
C100 was founded in 2010 to create a network between 100 Canadian Silicon Valley “insiders” that would help unlock capital, talent, and information for founders in Canada. Today, C100 reaches globally, curating an expansive community of Canadian tech leaders shaping some of the most innovative companies in the world. The organization focuses on quality rather than quantity with its strategic partnerships.
“In the constantly shifting landscape of technological innovation, Canada is emerging as a fertile ground for ambitious founders, and C100 is providing the global resources and exceptional network to support this,” says Ray Newal, C100 CEO. “Cultivator, powered by Conexus, offers unique support to startups in Saskatchewan that are solving global problems, and this is integral to the development of a new era of tech entrepreneurship in Canada. C100’s strategic initiatives ensure that Canada is a launchpad for the world’s most talented entrepreneurs, and partnering with Cultivator is one way to achieve that.”
The partnership between Cultivator, Conexus VC, and C100 is highly beneficial for the province of Saskatchewan. Through this partnership, companies and founders affiliated with Cultivator and Conexus VC will have the opportunity to tap into an extensive global network of Canadian investors, mentors, and industry experts. The C100, dedicated to empowering ambitious tech founders in Canada to achieve their bold visions, aligns seamlessly with the objectives of Cultivator and Conexus VC. By joining forces with the C100, Cultivator, and Conexus VC have access to the knowledge and insights of accomplished Canadian tech leaders who have effectively expanded groundbreaking enterprises. This partnership aims to elevate the prominence of Saskatchewan’s technology sector while fostering more robust connections with founders and funders both within Canada and internationally.

Our team is eager to learn from and contribute to their network to enhance the profile of Canadian technology companies,” said Kyle Scott, Managing Director, Conexus Venture Capital Inc.
