The SVIEC Foundation executes on its mission through a series of programs focused on education and knowledge sharing.
Speakers or panels on subjects of broad interest for the Italian and Italian-American community around innovation, economic development and social good. These events provide fantastic opportunities for both learning and networking, as attendees cover the spectrum of successful founders, senior executives, startup & scaleup entrepreneurs, professionals, public sector representatives, investors, and thought leaders.
These member-only events focus on new trends, less widely known subjects, discussed in a smaller group with a much higher level of interactivity.
The Foundation sponsors internships of Italian University students in US companies with a learning-by-doing approach. Many of the companies are located in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area, and feature executives that are active supporters of the Foundation.
An example of such programs is Silicon Valley Study Tour.
The Foundation promotes individualized education by matching experienced mentors with mature and starting entrepreneurs, developing professionals and younger professionals. It builds and expands an ecosystem of contacts that helps guide towards the right path to greater achievements.
