Our Mission

To create worldwide access to the best of Silicon Valley's ecosystem and "mindshare". Our belief is that knowledge is meant to be shared. Access Silicon Valley helps entrepreneurs get answers to their biggest questions and inspiration from the mecca of the startup world.

We Get It

Silicon Valley is an international startup hub and for many entrepreneurs around the world, can seem out of reach.

We’ve Been There

Without having a direct connection to the greatest business minds, accessing industry expertise is challenging.

We Can Help

Access Silicon Valley (ASV) provides entrepreneurs with opportunities to reach the most sought out Venture Capitalists, Founders and industry Experts.

Drive Continuous Value for Your Company with IP
In this session, IP Attorney, Noel Gillespie will explore how to use and manage your IP portfolio to continuously create additional value for a business. Often, a company’s IP portfolio can have value in other verticals, industries and or markets. With proper planning early on (startups) and sound strategy when the time comes (scale up), a company can unlock these additional opportunities and revenue streams, through the sale, licensing, enforcement, and acquisition of complementary IP. – For Founders to Execs!
