What we're about

Access Silicon Valley (http://www.accesssiliconvalley.net/) 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!!

3 Reasons Founders Get Fired & How to Develop Unhackable Leadership Skills

**TO ATTEND BUY TICKETS HERE**: https://asv-founder-unhackable-leadershiop.eventbrite.com/?aff=MeetUp Dinner, refreshments and networking included. Space is limited. Save your seat now. Join Access Silicon Valley for a Live Workshop on founder leadership development presented by author and speaker, Karen Jaw-Madson. SUMMARY Leadership Series 1 of 2 No one ever said leadership was easy. In startups, it’s a whole different world. Founders are ousted every day because stakeholders have “lost confidence” in their ability to lead (think WeWork, Uber, Groupon, and so on). The reality is that entrepreneurs don’t have access to the leadership development they need to be successful…until now. This highly interactive learning experience focuses on the founders themselves within their context, and introduces them to skills and concepts that they can use to become “unhackable”—authentic, rock solid, and without shortcuts. Participants takeaways include: - Actions to immediately boost leadership - Personal Leadership Vision and Development Plan - Workbook and reference guide Presented by Karen Jaw-Madson Author of: " Culture Your Culture: Innovating Experiences at Work" ******************************************** AGENDA 6:00pm - 6:45pm: Dinner/refreshments, networking 6:45pm - 7:00pm: Demo Table/Sponsor Introductions 7:00pm - 9:00pm: Live Workshop by Karen Jaw-Madson SPACE IS LIMITED BUY YOUR TICKET HERE NOW: https://asv-founder-unhackable-leadershiop.eventbrite.com/?aff=MeetUp ABOUT THE PRESENTER Karen Jaw-Madson is principal of Co.-Design of WorkExperience and author of Culture Your Culture: Innovating Experiences @ Work (Emerald Group Publishing, 2018).
