    So much of pitching these days has to do with connecting with influencers. Pitching is unfortunately always a gamble. Producing content is not. In this presentation we'll suggest you "pull a PR 180" and ask people to talk about themselves, and not you. We've found this technique to be the fastest way to build influencer relationships and industry thought leadership, and the benefits will come back to you in spades.

Silicon Valley Startup: Idea to IPO

Entrepreneurship permeates the culture of Silicon Valley -- the innovation capital of the world. Taking a startup from idea to IPO has taken on mythical proportions in Silicon Valley. Many dream the dream, with hopes of launching the "next big thing".

We are a community of entrepreneurs, technologists, academics, financial professionals, business writers, venture capitalists, investors, attorneys, consultants, and corporate executives.

We meet regularly to share resources, exchange ideas, and network. We participate in both on-line and off-line events.

Our events feature expert speakers, networking opportunities, collaboration, community, and fellowship.
