Silicon Valley Space Business Roundtable
The Silicon Valley Space Business Roundtable (SVSBR) is an organization that encourages the growth and development of aerospace-related businesses in California’s Silicon Valley. We closely collaborate with for-profits, universities, other non-profit organizations and government agencies including NASA Ames Research Center. As the west coast’s only organization of its kind, we provide input to leadership groups to expand the area’s business base by providing specific recommendations to improve the space business climate. SVSBR has its sights on the future of high technology. We provide forums by leading aerospace leaders to educate the industry on initiatives and goals. Our educational outreach program encourages students to enter these fields through our support of several schools in the Silicon Valley.
