What we're about

This is our meeting group, open to the public, co-hosted by SV Cafe, SV Idea, PuQuan Investment Club, SV Align and SV Universe.

Our organizations are dedicated to helping Silicon Valley Chinese engineers, entrepreneurs and startup team members to share resources and promote collaborations amongst engineers, innovators, entrepreneurs, students, business owners, startup founders, executives and investors.

Besides hosting technical and business events as well as social networking mixers, we provide an effective supporting network and platform by bringing together all kinds of talents of different technology backgrounds and competences.

Please join us!

SV Cafe, SV Idea, PuQuan Investment Club, SV Align and SV Universe are built to provide Silicon Valley elites with all backgrounds a place to communicate and interact with each other, as well as to pool all resources and connections to achieve cross-border conversation. The platforms differentiate themselves from similar kinds by primarily focusing on talent, idea and connection "crowdfunding" instead of the traditional money crowd-funding. In the mean time, unlike an incubator, the organizations emphasize the importance of communication, networking and opportunity developing and sharing.

SV Cafe, SV Idea, PuQuan Investment Club, SV Align and SV Universe devote themselves to combining the the experience from the success of a variety of funding models – with the Silicon Valley features, the core of which is the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship. This meetup group expects to contribute to the formation of a stronger bond between Silicon Valley and China by hosting and organizing a series of inspiring cross-border events.

Why Should You Join Toastmasters? Everyone has their own personal reasons for joining Toastmasters, but here are a few of the most common: Become a Better Public Speaker Members work through a series of educational programs (at their own pace) designed to improve their ability to write speeches, design presentations, and deliver them. Overcome Public Speaking Fears The most positive and supportive audience in the world is a Toastmasters club audience. Speaking regularly in front of a group helps you calm your nerves and communicate effectively. “Practice” Presentations for Other Audiences Everyone has different motivations for wanting to speak better. Maybe you want to hone your presentation skills for your career. Perhaps you want to be able to speak out in your volunteer organization. Maybe you want to complement your portfolio as an author, manager, or other professional with speaking gigs? Whatever the case, Toastmasters is a wonderful laboratory for you to practice your presentations and gain valuable feedback. Gain the Confidence and Courage to Lead Leadership and communication skills are intimately bound. Some might argue that leadership is nothing more than the ability to effectively communicate a vision. As your communication skills improve, your ability to lead will improve as well.
