What we're about

Access Silicon Valley ( is the “virtual bridge” to Silicon Valley, where startup entrepreneurs and serial entrepreneurs in real time, get access to and interact with, angels, VCs and great entrepreneurs that they otherwise wouldn’t get the opportunity to see, hear or possibly connect with. In addition we have put together valuable workshops to prepare startup entrepreneurs for the roller coaster ride of the startup world!! We encourage you to join us. Access Silicon Valley is an extension of the overall global vision to build “virtual bridges” between those cities that have great startup communities and Silicon Valley.

Access Silicon Valley began with a vision to provide startup founders access--access to educational and other information that every first time founder should know or be exposed to. This includes access to high caliber angels, VCs and “been there done that” successful, serial entrepreneurs. The Silicon Valley ecosystem is unique, which is why ASV extends beyond the geographical borders of Silicon Valley!

This community is much more than just a Meetup group…it’s the opportunity to become part of the Silicon Valley ecosystem or “mindshare” as we like to think of it. Stay tuned for an exciting journey as we deliver events and workshops that you won’t want to miss!!
