Build a Silicon Valley Network

One of the best ways to tap into the Silicon Valley is through a connection or a group with common interests ... but where do you start?

We work with groups that are interested in building a network in the Valley such as Accelerators, VC firms or ex-pat communities.

Working with Accelerators and VC firms allows us to connect your already vetted group of entrepreneurs and provide an introduction into this highly influential ecosystem.

We also work with people that want to build a community and give back such as a group of passionate ex-pats that would like to help connect entrepreneurs from their home country with a trusted network interested in sharing their expertise and experiences. We can help you formalize or further develop your ex-pat community and in doing so, bring together passionate people to help companies succeed, faster and with less friction.

Interested in building a community in another city ... another country? We can help you there too.
