Description: Silicon Valley Comes to Cambridge
19th – 21st November 2009

The Silicon Valley Comes to UK Programme brings together leading Investors, iconic serial entrepreneurs, ambitious students and successful angels with leading Silicon Valley Serial Entrepreneurs and Investors to discuss, debate, create and fund today’s most disruptive internet and green technologies that will change our world in the years to come.

Throughout the vibrants, fast-paced mix of masterclasses, workshops, debates and networking, delegates will come together to discuss, debate, create and fund today’s most disruptive internet and green companies that will change our world in the years to come.

This event is volunteer led by people who share an ambition for change and who appreciate the vital role universities and their alumni play in creating and sustaining an ecosystem and community that fosters innovation and entrepreneurship. We are grateful to our Sponsors, Organisers and Advisors for their help.

We hope that our efforts make at least a small contribution to encourage everyone to make the next step in their careers a more entrepreneurial one.
