Organizer Idea to IPO

Organizer of Pitch to Investor Gary Jinks, Managing Director, South Valley Angels

Entrepreneurship permeates the culture of the Digital Age.

The advent of the Digital Age has democratized innovation and entrepreneurship.

Never before has it been more possible for anyone from anywhere,  with  a great idea and a burning desire to succeed,  to make it big, and,  in the process, change the world in a relatively short period of time.

HP, Intel, Apple, Microsoft, Cisco, Oracle, Yahoo,  eBay, Amazon, Google, Facebook and many, many, many other iconic companies all started with just an idea.

Taking a startup from idea to IPO has taken on mythical proportions in Silicon Valley and beyond.  Many dream the dream, with hopes of launching the "next big thing".

We are a community of entrepreneurs, technologists, academics, financial professionals, corporate executives, attorneys, academics, bloggers, writers, content creators, and social activists.

One of the compelling features of our meetup group is our packed,  busy calendar full of  informative programs and practical activities designed to help our entrepreneurial members achieve their objectives and realize their aspirations.  Taking advantage of  this vast array of relevant content will make you a better entrepreneur.

We believe in working together.  We share resources, exchange ideas, and actively network with each other.  We  participate  in  on-line  as well as  off-line events.

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

Most of our events are free and open to all.
