Welcome to the SVTA Home Page

 

 Who we are

SVT Angels (SVTA), a 501 C(3) non-profit organization, is a group of seasoned entrepreneurs and investors in Silicon Valley. Our team has vast industry experience, extensive knowledge of both the U.S. and Taiwanese landscapes, and strong ties to both cultures. 

 

Mentoring in Silicon Valley

Silicon Valley is the premier innovation capital in the world, with abundant opportunities for startups and investors alike. Our unique Immersion Program fosters collaboration between Silicon Valley and Taiwan entrepreneurs and investors. Every year, we identify promising entrepreneurial teams from Taiwan and relocate them to Silicon Valley for an intensive three-month training program in business development and operations for startups. Selected teams will receive direct mentorship from two or more Angels to help grow and develop the project.

 

Demo Day

At the end of the Immersion Program, each team will present their project to SVTA and invited potential investors. This is an opportunity for each team to demonstrate their project's merit, fundablility, and the likelihood of success.

 

Follow-up

Teams and Mentor(s) will keep in touch for further assistance. Alumni are strongly encouraged to keep in touch with each other to continue to cultivate the Silicon Valley culture overseas and improve the chance of success.
