What People Say

It’s my first time to San Francisco and the Valley. Even though I heard a lot about it, read a lot about it, google it if you like, it doesn’t compare to coming here and actually meeting people, hearing the stories, and really get observed into that stories. We came with a few things we wanted to achieve: how can we build an innovation culture, how we can positively contribute to our ecosystem: what are the things we need to start or finish: how do we use water for example, and how do we look into environmental monitoring on app, and how we can use drones and the whole range of other technologies.

That was an amazing and inspiring program: Getting exposed to Silicon Valley environment and mindset, seeing all the different technologies and innovative organizations (startups and big corporation) supporting those technologies, and interact with Silicon Valley insiders on-site.

This is our first trip to Silicon Valley and when you start thinking about new technologies and directions -it begins here, and this is a completely different experience. When we want to move to innovation – this is what we are looking at Silicon Valley.I appreciate the support that was given by SVIC and the knowledge we gained during our short trip.
