Now in its 9th year, Launch: Silicon Valley is firmly established as the premier product launch platform for startups from the San Francisco Bay area, and around the world . The event, co-presented by SVForum, Garage Technology Ventures and Microsoft, provides the next generation of emerging technology companies with the opportunity to pitch their products to, and network with, an audience of Silicon Valley’s top VCs, Angels, corporate business development executives, prospective customers and partners, bloggers and media.
As in previous years, Launch: Silicon Valley 2013 will feature new companies that are ready for launch, but are not yet well known. These are companies that have a product or service available (as of June 4, 2013), but have not been out in the marketplace for more than a few months.
Launch: Silicon Valley 2013 is designed to uncover and showcase products and services from the most exciting of the newest startups in information technology, mobility, digital media, next generation internet, life sciences and clean technologies. Up to 30 of the most interesting companies will be invited to leverage Launch: Silicon Valley 2013 as the springboard to launch their product or service, and to network with the audience of Silicon Valley’s top movers and shakers at the Pre-L:SV Event Party on the evening of June 3, as well as at the event itself on June 4.
