With spring just around the corner, it’s time to register for the 8th Silicon Valley Open Doors – SVOD’13 event on June 10 and 11!
SVOD is different from other conferences. Our motto is: “No bull, strictly business”. We have no prepared speeches or marketing pitches. Instead, we put the industry’s top players to unscripted conversations about the impact innovation technology will have on our lives, their experiences and successes. As a result, the audience learns about unique facts, unprecedented ideas and winning strategies from the industry’s most creative thinkers.
Bringing together startups, successful entrepreneurs, angel investors and top venture capitalists from all over the world, SVOD offers unparalleled opportunities to network with some of the most creative, forward-thinking, and insightful people in the entrepreneurship and investment world.
With this year’s theme “Ignite!” the event is guaranteed to re-ignite your passion and supercharge your creative juices for the rest of the year. You and your team members will leave inspired by our featured legendary speakers:
