What we're about

Entrepreneurship permeates the culture of Silicon Valley - the innovation capital of the world.

Never before has it been so possible for anyone from anywhere, with a great idea and a burning desire to succeed, to make it big and change the world in a relatively short period of time.

Taking a startup from idea to IPO has taken on mythical proportions. Many dream the dream, with hopes of launching the "next big thing".

We are a community of entrepreneurs, technologists, academics, financial professionals, corporate executives, attorneys, academics, bloggers, writers, content creators, and social activists.

One of the compelling features of our meetup group is our packed, busy calendar full of informative programs and practical activities designed to help our entrepreneurial members achieve their objectives and realize their aspirations.

We meet regularly to share resources, exchange ideas, and network. We participate in on-line as well as off-line events.

Our events feature expert speakers, networking opportunities, collaboration, community, and fellowship.
