From the event announcement:
Silicon Valley Bank, financial partner to technology and life science companies of all sizes worldwide, will host a day-long educational event for entrepreneurs in which they can learn from the successes and mistakes of other startup founders and CEOs. “Defining Moments: Inflection Points in the Life of a Startup” is Silicon Valley Bank’s second annual Accelerator CEO Summit and will be Webcast from the Computer History Museum on October 6, 2011 in collaboration with the Startup America Partnership.
“We have found that connecting our clients with each other is one of the most powerful ways we can help them grow,” said Gerald Brady, Managing Director of Silicon Valley Bank’s Entrepreneur Services Group. “The successes and failures in a startup’s life are inspiring and entertaining for fellow entrepreneurs, but most importantly they are lessons startup CEOs can build upon in the development of their own businesses.”
Together with the Startup America Partnership, Silicon Valley Bank joins dozens of successful, world-renowned companies engaged in helping entrepreneurs and young companies obtain the knowledge, tools and resources they need to grow and create jobs.
Silicon Valley Bank’s experienced bankers offer a comprehensive suite of financing solutions, treasury management, corporate investment and international banking services to its clients worldwide. Dedicated to the long-term success of its innovative clients, Silicon Valley Bank helps connect startups to potential investors; hosts educational and networking events worldwide; shares valuable intelligence, perspective and data; and advocates for issues affecting its clients in political arenas.
