Celebrating our 35th Anniversary with a Startup Battle and Startupedia Launch Party!
*record scratch* Wait, what??
On January 31st, 2018 at Opal in Mountain View, we had a lot to celebrate!!
1. It was 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 launched 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. Check it out at startupedia.info.
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 brought back former champions and favorites from previous Pitch Nights to battle it out onstage in a no-holds-barred pitch competition.
Our panel of judges includes:
- Jing Brewer, Senior Principal, Accenture Ventures
- Bill Reichert, Managing Director, Garage Tech Ventures
- Fadi Bishara, Founder & CEO, BlackBox VC
- Britt Anderson, Partner, K&L Gates
