About the Visionary Awards

Each year at the Silicon Valley Forum Visionary Awards, we honor industry leaders who have pioneered innovation and fostered the spirit of entrepreneurship, and whose unique vision continues to shape Silicon Valley. This exclusive evening is where legendary colleagues and past honorees come together to celebrate the spirit of innovation, and honor those who have made Silicon Valley synonymous with creativity and life-changing advancements in technology. The Visionary Awards celebrate leadership in technology, education, venture capital, and entrepreneurship; the caliber of each Honoree’s work—and their presence in their chosen fields—places the Award recipients among the brightest stars of Silicon Valley. Many of those attending have graced the pages of such publications as Fortune, Bloomberg, Wired, and Time.
