The East Bay Series (EBS) takes place monthly (except for August and December) on a Wednesday evening at locations convenient to those who live and work in the East Bay, Tri-Valley and beyond in the Capital Corridor and Central Valley. The EBS theme is “real-life stories of entrepreneurial success,” reflecting how we use real-life experiences to give you practical recommendations with great take-away value. The format is a moderated panel discussion, typically with between three and five members – usually VCs and experienced entrepreneurs – on the panel. We normally have between 20 and 30 (though occasionally as many as 50) attendees, most of whom are entrepreneurs, service providers, or funding professionals. Pre- and post-event networking and a tasty buffet dinner offer excellent opportunities to make valuable new contacts. The cost to attend is: $10.00 for SVForum members, $25.00 for non-SVForum members and $10.00 more at the door. For more information, please visit:

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
