Joanne Fedeyko, CEO
I'm a believer of radical generosity and I've built a company around making meaningful connections to help people succeed.
Previously I was the Executive Director of C100 Association, a nonprofit dedicated to helping Canadian entrepreneurs connect into Silicon Valley, where I built an extensive network across Canada's startup ecosystem along with an influential network in the Valley.
I am passionate about supporting women in tech and I have formed the Canadian Women’s Network in the Valley to advise female founders and help women in technology roles gain deeper connections into Silicon Valley.
I grew up along the 59th parallel in Northern Alberta. My career has been everything but a straight line. I realized that the my "normal", living in the Bay Area since 1999, is not normal outside of the bubble I now call "home" ... but I love it! The pace, the ideas, the excitement, and the urgency that exists here is addictive. And we get shit done.
I have always enjoyed connecting people and becoming passionate about their purpose, so I'm excited to see where there are synergies.
Connection Silicon Valley is involved with and/or driving a number of meaningful initiatives.
From a network that supports Canadian Entrepreneurs in Life Science (CELS), to supporting diversity and inclusivity initiatives with a formal network of Canadian women in the Valley supporting female founders and women in tech, to helping get more women on boards with theBoardlist, to creating a bridge between the province of Alberta and the Valley (AIA Council).
Stay tuned as we are always adding passionate endeavors to our repertoire.
