Connection Silicon Valley, an organization that helps companies collaborate, innovate, and partner with Silicon Valley's world-renowned technology ecosystem, has announced that applications are now open for the Canadian Women’s Network Fall Cohort, being held in San Francisco on December 10-14, 2018. To apply, visit by October 26, 2018.

Designed for female founders of startups with up to $1 Million in revenue or women who hold a decision making role in a startup or technology company, the Cohort’s series of events aim to support women in tech to scale their business, drive economic growth and bring foreign investment dollars into Canadian companies through their participation in the network.

“The Canadian Women’s Network brings together over 30 highly experienced and connected ex-pat Canadian women in Silicon Valley who want to support budding entrepreneurs and women in tech reach new heights. We purposely structure the agenda to ensure that everyone gets the opportunity to participate in workshops, speak to mentors one-on-one and form valuable relationships with each other,” commented Joanne Fedeyko, CEO of Connection Silicon Valley and founder of the Canadian Women’s Network.

“Being part of the Canadian Women’s Network has introduced me to strong women from across Canada, to industry partners throughout San Francisco who operate at an international level and has inspired a new mindset to trust myself in taking more chances when new opportunities present themselves. I highly recommend this for women in tech that want to take themselves and their companies to the next level,” Esmeralda Smith Romeo, founder and CEO of Toronto-based startup, Olive+Elliot.

As well as pitch feedback and office hours, the Cohort program includes roundtables on topics such as:

  • Successful growth models

  • When and how to build strategic alliances

  • Navigating Silicon Valley

  • How to build a company for a successful exit

  • How to develop your media and positioning strategies

  • Fundraising in the Valley

Applications to attend the Fall Cohort close on October 26.
