About

In August 2005, La Storia nel Futuro and SVIEC (the Silicon Valley Italian Executive Council) teamed up to launch the very first Silicon Valley Study Tour.

Paolo Marenco, President of La Storia nel Futuro and Jeff Capaccio, Chair of the highly influential, 800 plus member, SVIEC, created a thoughtful series of seminars, taught by top executives from some of the Silicon Valley’s most cutting-edge startups, well established technology giants and prestigious venture capital firms.

  • Economics
  • Computer Science
  • Math
  • Law
  • Chemistry
  • Industrial design
  • Other

The goal was to expose graduate and graduating engineering and business students, from leading Italian Universities, to the unique entrepreneurial culture of the Silicon Valley.

The results have exceeded Paolo’s and Jeff’s expectations, producing multiple internships and doctoral theses in US,  employment opportunities, incubators and start ups in Italy.
