35th Anniversary! Startup Battle and Launch Party

January 31, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm UTC-7


Coming this January to the squared circle of Silicon Valley – it’s our Startupedia Launch Party and Startup Pitch Battle and 35th Anniversary!

*record scratch* Wait, what??

OK, we realize that it’s kind of a lot- but we’ve got a lot to celebrate. Strap in:

1. It’s Our 35th Anniversary! That’s right, Silicon Valley Forum has been around since 1983 (we’re technically an Old Millenial!). We’d like to think we’re looking as young as ever…
2. We’re launching Startupedia, our incredible resource guide for startup entrepreneurs! This mamma-jamma has been a LONG time coming, and we’re so d*rn proud to finally show it off to all of you.
3. Our Startup Pitch Night series is an audience favorite, so we thought we’d celebrate both our commitment to entrepreneurship AND our groovy new startup tool with an ULTIMATE STARTUP PITCH BATTLE! We’re bringing back former champions and favorites from previous Pitch Nights to battle it out onstage in a no-holds-barred pitch competition.

Oh yeah–it’s gonna be an EPIC evening, brother. Do NOT miss out. Score a ringside ticket and join us this January! #SVFStartupBattle #Startupedia #SVF35
