I am delighted to participate in and sponsor SVOD. It is particularly gratifying at this stage of my professional career to be able to support this unique organization and give back to the high-tech community. Looking back, I regret not having the benefits of SVOD network early on, when I really needed it! It is wonderful to see the new startups taking advantage of this very special forum.

I love coming to the Silicon Valley Open Doors! I discover entrepreneurs here every single year, and I think I’ve been to all of them.
Founder, The Angels’ Forum
The quality of entrepreneurs and the international flavor: it’s always fun to see where innovation is happening around the world. It was fun for us to see not only the quality of thought but also pace of execution and the teams here are becoming ready to play.

Thank you for the opportunity to present Driveway at SVOD. It gave us much needed exposure to the wide investor community. Combining the pitch preparation classes with the presentation content guidance, we came out strong and confident from the podium. During the conference we had a chance to speak to many investors and industry leaders resulting in a very valuable feedback.
It was great to present at SVOD and meet world-class entrepreneurs and investors. Our venture was off to a fast start in the funding round after the conference, we had an early closing to the round, and I look forward to being part of SVOD in the future!

Partner, Charles River Ventures, (Midas List, 1st investor in twitter & Yammer, $1.4B under management)
Cleary one of the very best conferences we attended and sponsored in Silicon Valley this year. To us the conference truly captured what we see in our daily practice, the substantial opportunities and also the challenges with cross-border business arrangements. We made many new meaningful connections.
