We are incredibly excited to introduce to you a brand new Startupedia powered by Silicon Valley Forum. You might be wondering: why would Silicon Valley Forum launch an initiative like Startupedia? We’ll tell you: For the past 35 years, we’ve been dedicated to providing knowledge, resources and support to our startup community. In recent years, we have worked closely with international entrepreneurs, hosting them at our many pitch events and immersion programs and helping them connect to and learn from the Silicon Valley startup community. Startupedia.info is the result—an amazing new platform to share that local startup knowledge to entrepreneurs around the world.
Since its initial launch in spring 2016, we have expanded our Startupedia video library to include more than 200 videos by over 50 Silicon Valley founders, investors, and industry leaders sharing their best advice about building a startup. In addition to our video library, we have launched new initiatives to help you tackle some key challenges:
VC Connect: This is a closed online Q&A webinar limited to 7 startup founders in a specific vertical to have an intimate conversation with an investor. We hope to help you get closer to your next fundraising round! Enterprise, Saas and Infrastructure Startups – join our upcoming Q&A session with Sierra Ventures on January 25th here.
Crash Courses: With our crash courses, you’ll learn key insights into specific topics such as fundraising in Silicon Valley, incorporating in the US, and more. When you arrive in Silicon Valley, you’ll be in-tune with how things work and can start building connections right away.
Free consultation from trusted partners: Under ‘Resources’ you’ll find a guide to Silicon Valley—a list of service providers and companies that support entrepreneurs. Setting up shop in Silicon Valley isn’t easy, and we wanted to provide you an opportunity to connect with trusted service providers. We’ll be building that list week by week.
There’s a party! We’re throwing a party to celebrate our Startupedia launch! And 35th Anniversary. And 13th edition of the Startup Pitch Night. Come and celebrate with us (FREE for startup founders) – Register here!
