We've known SVASE for a long time and recently met with the SVASE team to learn more about their organization and all the great resources they offer entrepreneurs.
Founded in 1995 by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs, SVASE, the Silicon Valley Association of Startup Entrepreneurs, is the largest and fastest growing nonprofit association in Northern California dedicated exclusively to empowering early stage entrepreneurs across all technology and life science sectors to build successful companies. As one measure of success, SVASE members raised over $76MM last year by leveraging SVASE events and contacts.
SVASE hosts 10-12 events each month, featuring VCs, Angels and veteran Entrepreneurs as guest speakers, and attended annually by over 6,000 entrepreneurs, VCs, bloggers and press, and our events newsletter is requested by over 10,000 entrepreneurs and executives each week (sign up). With our web-based services, including 24 Hour Networking, the online SVASE Yellow Pages, the keyword searchable VC Database and Jobs in Funded Startups database, and our links to VC Experts, plus blogs from AlwaysOn and Guy Kawasaki, SVASE is able to help entrepreneurs around the clock and around the world.
