  • About SVIEF

    Silicon Valley Technology Innovation & Entrepreneurship Forum (SVIEF) is an international conference designed to foster innovation and promote business partnerships connecting US and Asia-Pacific region. It is a leading venue in high-tech industry field gathering multi-tech and business professionals, while providing a platform for talent, technology and capital exchange. The past three SVIEF were held in Silicon Valley in Fall, 2011, 2012, and 2013, with more than 5,000 attendees each year.


    The 2014 SVIEF will be held on Sep 27th, Saturday, 2014 at Santa Clara Convention Center. It is designed to be intense and informative, with theme on "Global Vision of Innovation: Cross-Border and Disrupt". The 2014 SVIEF will keep on providing the attendees and supporters with a vital and dynamic platform.

    With the global economic growth, the world economy is constantly changing. SMEs could no more rely on low energy costs, low labor costs or low environmental costs. They are facing new survival and development issues - how to transfer from imitation economy into innovation economy? However, what is innovative thinking? How to develop innovative thinking? How will innovative thinking help with economic growth?
     

    To answer these questions, SVIEF 2014 will invite industry leaders, entrepreneurs, VCs, etc. from both US and China to explore the infinite potentiality of innovation and entrepreneurship across the Asia-Pacific region, and share the vision of new era as well as faith in entrepreneur spirit.
