We know you were awaiting news of the next N100! We’ve been very busy and we’re excited to share what we’ve come up with. A little background first. Consider this: less than 3% of venture capital investment in North America backs women entrepreneurs. It’s time to change that.
While we prepare the 2020 edition of N100, here are some stories, upcoming events and opportunities coming to you from N100 HQ at Venture13! From tech talks to discovery days, from manufacturing conferences to hackathons, we look forward to seeing you in #TechNorthumberland this Fall.
We are very proud of FanSaves for winning the second edition of Renfrew County CFDC’s RC100 Technology Startup Competition. We backed FanSaves through our N1M initiative with the support of FedDev Ontario. FanSaves was also recently named a Top 100 Semi-Finalist for Startup of the Year.

In a dramatic turn, the N100 Power Panel has advanced four startups (rather than the expected three) to the Board Room and the Finals of N100 Evolution, after an exciting Pitch Contest Semi-Final event held in the Innovation Commons at Venture13 on September 13, 2018.
N100 sat down to chat with our newest sponsor, Chris Oliver, Founder of CCO Productions.
