When: Wednesday, November 8, 4:30 pm to 9:00 pm
Where: Microsoft Silicon Valley Campus, Mountain View
“Launch: Silicon Valley” is the showcase for the next generation of high technology companies. It is being brought to us by SVASE, the Silicon Valley Association of Startup Entrepreneurs. The big idea is to display the most exciting of the newest startups in high technology.
SVASE has recently circulated a Call for Submissions: “Launch” is looking for new companies that are ready for launch, but are not already well-known. These are emerging companies who have a product or service available (as of November 8), but have not been out for more than several months. All technology sectors and all geographies will be considered.
Executive summaries are being accepted at:
The deadline for submissions is October 15.
To be clear, “Launch: Silicon Valley” is not a pitchfest or a beauty pageant. Companies will not be pitching for funding; they will be looking for buzz, customers, mindshare, and possibly talent and partners. “Launch” wants to focus on finding companies that are not already well-funded and well-known, and that can’t afford their own fancy PR campaigns and an exorbitant fee to present at some elegant resort.
