Who We Are
Silicon Foundry is an innovation advisory platform that partners with select leading global corporations, while also serving as a resource for the entire startup and investment community. We provide our Member organizations a curated flow of strategic insights, targeted connectivity, physical presence and actionable business opportunities, delivered by a dedicated and expert team that is deeply embedded in the Silicon Valley ecosystem and beyond.
We build bridges between leading corporations, startups, investors and industry influencers by connecting the dots and delivering highly-curated introductions, plus private bespoke experiences that bring together visionary people who are creating new technologies, platforms or paradigms of thought that will fundamentally change the way we live, work and play in the years to come.
For Corporate Executives
Obtain unique access
We serve as a partner and frontline extension of our Members’ teams. Leveraging our network, we deliver highly-targeted connectivity, intelligence and deal flow to unlock (tangible/actionable) business opportunities – from strategic partnerships, to investments, spin outs and acquisitions.
Discover by design
We serve as Members’ peripheral vision driving discovery through ongoing curated introductions and custom experiences that both expose Members to over the horizon technologies and models and connect them directly to the entrepreneurs and startups that are relevant in the context of their businesses today.
Cut through the noise
We help Members zero in on only the most relevant and impactful opportunities by filtering the expansive technology landscape using the same intensive process that venture capitalists use to evaluate deals.
