Two Ottawa companies selected for Silicon Valley trip

Ottawa companies Klipfolio and Interset are two of 20 Canadian startups selected for the C100 “48 Hours in the Valley” trip.

The companies will get a chance to expand their businesses through networking, mentoring and business growth opportunities in Silicon Valley.

Interset’s CEO, Dale Quayle, said it’s an exciting time for companies like his that are in the cybersecurity business. Interset’s solution uses analytics to detect possible cyber threats.

“We’re very pleased to be identified by the C100 and grateful to this excellent organization for the service and platform they’re providing for Canada’s tech innovators to expand our businesses on the global stage,” Mr. Quayle said in a statement.

Klipfolio CEO Allan Wille said the trip is “great recognition” for the dashboard developer.

“The introductions we’re receiving and the connections we’re making as part of this program will help us as we continue to grow,” Mr. Wille said in a statement.

The C100 is a San Francisco-based non-profit group focused on connecting Canadian companies with partners in Silicon Valley.

The 2015 version of “48 Hours in the Valley” wraps up Wednesday.
