At Silicon Valley Forum, we believe in the transformative power of entrepreneurship. We’ve dedicated the last 33 years to helping people learn how to build a business the Silicon Valley way, with a focus on creativity and innovation, using technology to bring society towards a better future. Whether you’re trying to create a company here or build your own Silicon Valley at home, our events and our online portal light the way for you to learn and grow as a 21st century entrepreneur.
At our pitch nights, you’ll develop your skills as a company leader and connect with top VC’s and investors; our series events and conferences are an avenue to learn from and network with expert speakers and panelists. Our international immersion programs tour through storied companies in Silicon Valley, and are a great chance for audiences to see innovation from all over the world and learn from those who are making it happen.
In 2016, we introduced a way to put the entire Valley in your pocket: our online portal and Startupedia, a comprehensive, interactive learning platform for entrepreneurs. Essentially, it’s an updated version of what we’ve been doing for the last thirty-three years: it’s a startup workshop, a resource guide, and a dynamic learning tool, all on the same platform.
Our partners include global leaders like Accenture, IBM, Microsoft, and SAP, just to name a few; as well as leading venture capital firms and service providers. In addition to our dedicated staff, we are supported by an experienced and committed Board of Directors. We are a fully independent 501 c3 nonprofit.
We organize about 100 different activities per year, have over 15,000 subscribers/users, and work with over 40 countries worldwide.
