OPEN Silicon Valley (OPEN SV) is a volunteer-run organization dedicated to promoting entrepreneurship and professional development.
We engage through a wide variety of programs including workshops, mentorship, forums, and other networking events. We enable entrepreneurs and professionals to share ideas, gain valuable feedback and tangible support from the charter members and OPEN SV events.
A key objective of OPEN SV is to bridge the gap between Pakistan’s start-up ecosystem and Silicon Valley and to foster innovation and growth in that sector. I want to take a moment to thank our charter members for their incredible support in making OPEN SV, Silicon Valley’s most impactful organization.
We are also truly blessed to have a great team of volunteers from Silicon Valley and across the globe who set us up for success. Their devotion, dedication, and commitment to the organization and its programs help us achieve the many milestones we set every year and their successful execution. You make us all proud.
We look forward to hearing from you. Whether you wish to volunteer or are looking to connect, engage and learn, our doors are always OPEN.
