SILICON CATALYST AND GOOGLE PRESENT SEMICONDUCTOR VENTURE CAPITAL PANEL
Google Developers Launchpad Space, San Francisco, CA
What does the future hold for semiconductor industry startups?
While semiconductors were once a haven for entrepreneurism and startups starting back in the 1960's with companies like Fairchild and Intel giving birth to "Silicon Valley," startups are now more synonymous with consumer apps than the semiconductor industry. The industry is seeing a tremendous shift in terms of the number of seed and series A deals with semiconductor startups but megatrends around mobile, IoT, and data center are driving a new wave of semiconductor startups as well as semiconductor startup incubators and accelerators. Join Silicon Catalyst's startup seminar in June 2017 to get the perspective directly from a panel of leading venture capitalists in the Bay Area. VC's from Lux Capital, Presidio Partners, and Stern Ventures will share their thoughts on startups, venture capital, and the semiconductor industry. This event is organized by Silicon Catalyst, the industry's first incubator for semiconductor solution start-ups, and Google Developers Launchpad.
Our distinguished panelists are:
- Shahin Farshchi, Lux Capital
- Faysal Sohail, Presidio Partners
- Cang Quach, Stern Ventures
