KITCHENER, ON (SEPTEMBER 16th, 2015) --Bridgit, a leader in user friendly construction software, has won the inaugural C100 Startup Challenge, judged by some of Silicon Valley’s top Venture Capitalists, including Mithril Capital’s Ajay Royan.
The C100 Startup Challenge took place on September 15th and featured Dragon’s Den style pitches from seven Kitchener-Waterloo and Toronto based startups. Taking place during the Toronto International Film Festival, the event was part of the Venture North program organized by the C100.
“Venture North has taken a world class city and a world class festival and used them as a backdrop to showcase world class Canadian talent,” says Bridgit’s Mallorie Brodie who delivered the winning pitch.
Bridgit participated in the C100’s flagship 48 Hours in the Valley program this past June. “In the past few months alone Bridgit has received many benefits from participating in the various programs offered by the C100,” says Brodie. “While the [$15,000] prize from yesterday’s pitch competition is great, what we’re most excited about the opportunity to meet and impress influential Silicon Valley investors”.
