We are pleased to announce Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) as one of this years gold event sponsors!

SVB began with an inspired idea among a group of friends playing poker 30 years ago, and has since developed into a successful global financial service company with an entrepreneurial mind. They have helped their customers build ideas through SVB’s targeted financial services and expertise.

Named by Forbes as one of America’s best banks in 2015 and as one of America’s best-managed companies in 2014, we are so excited to have SVB at Portland Startup weekend to share their knowledge with our participants.

Thank you Silicon Valley bank for your support in this years event! To learn more about SVB, please visit their website and follow them on Twitter @SVB_Financial.
