Every A100 member plays a role in growing world-class tech and innovation leaders.

Why join the A100?

The A100 is the place to be for outperforming tech founders, operators, investors and leaders. Informed by our own experience, we understand the value of connections, networks, mentorship and peer guidance, and are committed to paying that experience forward.

Our Charter Members are some of the most successful tech founders and investors in Western Canada who have deep knowledge, networks and resources to share (and receive perks that are exclusive to Charter Members). A100 Associate Members are well on their way to building ‘the next big thing’, and they benefit from learning from those who’ve already been down that path as well as peers who are 3-9 months ahead or behind in their startup journeys. January 1 onboarding application deadline: December 8, 2023.

The A100 is committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging.
