What Participants Say

"This program is an excellent opportunity to get an idea of what is going on in Silicon Valley and experience it firsthand.  The program exceeded my expectations: fantastic content, set of companies, VCs, and startups."
Hiram Alarid
"Thank you for this wonderful (and intense!) week we had together. I learned so much from all these young and bright people we met. Apart from the quality of the agenda, you guys were so punctual and organized through the week: we had no delays in transportation, no last minute meeting changes, no promises broken at all."
Hakan Yilmaz
"The overall program was very well suited to the interests I had: 1. Taking a 60,000 look at the valley while being able to selectively dive deep, subject to interest; 2. Traveling with a small, hand picked co-hort, with the potential to create deeper bonds, subject to interest; and 3. Enjoying the sights and sounds of the Valley. All three were delivered, in spades."
Bill Tharp
"The FinTech week by Silicon Valley Innovation Center has opened my horizons and made it very clear that I personally and the companies I am working for are not yet sufficiently participating in the innovation economy. With the opportunities that have been presented and the connections I have made, I am determined to change that in very short order."
Oliver Büchse
"The Fintech Week event by the Silicon Valley Innovation Centre was extremely informative and worthwhile. Not only was it great to connect with the directors of the companies we were meeting with but also the other attendees of Fintech Week. If you're in the Fintech space or considering moving into this industry, Fintech Week would enable you to gain valuable insights into the market, and how best to innovate and accelerate your idea."
Stephanie Brennan
"SVIC is a fascinating new hub for entrepreneurs, innovators, and all those keen to follow new developments and trends. My talks and seminars there based on my innovation books with IDEO have impressed me with the enthusiasm and talent of the attendees, and the quality of the participating companies ­­– from Pandora to Cisco, UCSF, Symantec and others. Ideally located in San Mateo in an appealing space, SVIC is an excellent forum to exchange ideas. It's a great way to expand your network."
