Silicon Valley Startup: Idea to IPO
Palo Alto, CA
Entrepreneurship permeates the culture of Silicon Valley - the innovation capital of the world.
The advent of the Digital Age has democratized innovation and entrepreneurship.
Never before has it been more possible for anyone from anywhere, with a great idea and a burning desire to succeed, to make it big, and in the process, change the world in a relatively short period of time.
HP, Intel, Apple, Microsoft, Cisco, Oracle, Yahoo, eBay, Amazon, Google, Facebook and many, many, many other iconic companies all started with just an idea.
Taking a startup from idea to IPO has taken on mythical proportions in Silicon Valley and beyond. Many dream the dream, with hopes of launching the "next big thing".

Our mission is to provide entrepreneurs with the knowledge, guidance, tools, and connections they need to succeed. Our goal is to build a strong, vibrant, collaborative entrepreneurial community with deep, lasting business and social relationships throughout Silicon Valley and beyond.
One of the compelling features of our organization is our packed, busy calendar of informative programs and practical activities designed to help our entrepreneurial members achieve their objectives and realize their aspirations. Taking advantage of this vast array of relevant content will make you a better entrepreneur.
We believe in working together. We share resources, exchange ideas, and actively engage with each other -- on a personal level as well as on a business level. We participate in on-line as well as off-line events.
Our events feature expert speakers, networking opportunities, collaboration, community, and fellowship.

Open Source Real Estate
Mountain View, CA
Welcome prospective and active real estate investors!
The goal of this group is to deconstruct how real estate “has always been done” and then build a better approach together. For a long time, real estate was only accessible to the wealthy, deals were found exclusively through brokers, and you had to live where you were investing. Zillow alone, made all of these constraints, and many more, obsolete. In the last few years, we’ve seen an explosion of technology and evolving culture that is reshaping real estate investing.
As technology makes real estate more accessible, it’s actually NEW investors, not institutional groups, that are more likely to see real estate through the proper lens. Help us break down real estate investing so we can separate the timeless truths from the B.S. baggage that’s accumulated over the years.
Topics that we'll cover:
- How to start successfully investing in real estate despite analysis paralysis, insufficient funds, or too many blindspots
- How to find deals, or use creativity to make them
- How to mitigate risk when investing
- How to structure and finance deals effectively
You should join us if you're:
- Looking to get started in real estate
- Looking for guidance or mentorship
- Looking for partners
- Looking for tricks/tips from other investors
- Looking to build your network
- Looking to bounce ideas off of other real estate investors
