We recently hosted Pitch Global CVC, Govt & Impact Summit as a part of our outreach on behalf of NorCal SBDC, funded through California Governor’s Office of Economic Development and Small Business Administration to CVCs and other investors who are investing in Silicon Valley in startups which can create Economic Impact and jobs.  Special thanks goes also out for our host San Francisco Office of Small Business for the facility The San Francisco Permit Center and also for the support we received.

We have two major blocks of Pitch Events on October 21st:
- General Startups
- Life science Startups

We also offer special exposure via sponsorship tickets with extra perks, as compared to regular pitch tickets.


For example, Louis Lehot (Senior Partner Foley Law) talks with Vish Misra (legendary former President of TIE) about "How to make a soft landing in Silicon Valley", or Deborah Magid (IBM) is being interviewed by Silicon Valley veteran Jim Simmons.


We designed the two days for plenty of opportunity to network. The evening event in a more casual way, but also the various coffee breaks on the conference day, coupled with the networking opportunity at the end of the official program. This is the stuff where connections are made, and it is not unheard of that deals happen too.


The dedicated Startup Demo space gives investors and other visitors all-day access to your dedicated area/ Here you can discuss your individual business opportuntiy and gauge in one-on-one meeting the investor interest.
