A Destination for Innovation. Presented by Aite-Novarica in collaboration with Silicon Valley Forum

The Silicon Valley Experience

Now you have a chance to experience the Silicon Valley culture of entrepreneurship and innovation first hand. Join the 3-day program co-organized by Aite-Novarica Group and Silicon Valley Forum, where you will have a chance to learn from, get inspired by, and connect with executives from large tech corporations, startup entrepreneurs, accelerators and investors.


Our group will be staying at the Villa Florence near Union Square in San Francisco.

Upon arrival to the hotel on the evening of Monday, January 31st, participants will join an informal dinner reception with an invited guest from the Silicon Valley ecosystem, commencing with a speech about the Silicon Valley experience.

In the morning on Tuesday, February 1st, we will visit the HQ of a leading technology corporation and meet with high profile executives in Silicon Valley. Corporations like Google, LinkedIn, Salesforce, Amazon Web Services, or similar are on the list.

The day will conclude with a seated dinner followed by a panel discussion with three guest speakers (e.g. venture capitalist, entrepreneur, and digital thought leader), in discussion with Aite-Novarica Group experts.

On Wednesday, February 2nd, we will start the day by visiting another large corporation as well as visiting a typical Silicon Valley accelerator and meet with the management and portfolio companies. The day will conclude with dinner in San Francisco!

On Thursday morning, February 3rd, we will have breakfast near the hotel, followed by one corporate site visit, and a wrap up discussion on the program and key take-aways. We will end by 11:30am to allow for travel time or to begin a long weekend in the Bay Area. Please book your flights accordingly.
