Mission

The Silicon Valley Study Tour seeks to create and maintain an important bridge between young graduates, researchers, business angels, “start-uppers”, managers and entrepreneurs with the many successful Italian and Italian American high tech, biotech and venture capital executives in the Silicon Valley.

SVIEC plays a critical role in fostering this bridge as it remains the only organization to have assembled the top Italian and Italian American high tech, biotech and venture capital executives, all of whom serve as outstanding role models, mentors and potential business partners for Italy’s current and next generation of entrepreneurs and technology executives.
