加州硅谷 – 硅谷食堂落地筹备委员会(“筹委会”)于2015年1月4日在圣荷西举行了第三次扩大会议。与会人员有委员会秘书长及其他成员,以及来自投资、创业、科技、地产等领域的众位资深人士。会议主旨在于交流和探讨关于以筹智筹人为主的独特众筹理念,并且进一步讨论硅谷食堂的落地计划。在会上,筹委会决议邀请志同道合的硅谷各界精英人士加入其接下来的后续会议,参与和开展广泛讨论,使硅谷食堂落地也在“筹智、筹人”的过程中实现。

筹委会成员坚信,开会和讨论的过程本身就是一个团队建立和成员选择的过程,坚信一个团队的内在凝聚力是整套讨论和决策制度的核心基础,对任何新加入的成员抱持开放和包容的心态。筹委会目前有十位发起人,计划将成员人数扩大到20到50位。人数众多更有利于做出明智决策,而灵活的时间安排和明确的法律责任和风险则保证任何成员不需要做出正式承诺。所有筹委会成员,无论加入先后,都将拥有平等的话语权和决策权,其意见和贡献也都会被认真对待。

关于硅谷食堂(SV Café

硅谷食堂是一个众筹平台,但其与业内其他组织不同之处在于其第一主旨是筹智和筹人,而非筹钱。有别于孵化器,硅谷食堂强调交流、人脉与机会的发展和共享。蓝总认为,硅谷食堂的品牌价值在于其所能促进的“人脉-信任-合作机会”的过程,而这过程本身又会反过来为硅谷食堂的品牌增加更多价值。作为一个“公共食堂”,硅谷食堂不仅提供适应中国人消费需求的高端餐饮和服务作为其基本运作部分,更重要的是以“高度跨界,资源整合”为核心理念,实现机会和人脉的对接,为各种思维碰撞、创新整合创造一个拥有无限可能性的平台。

硅谷食堂致力于将中国元素与硅谷元素有机结合起来。中国元素主要指参照中国式的众筹成功经验与模式,而硅谷元素则重在创新创业的精神。硅谷食堂将会以沙龙/俱乐部的形式运行,积极承办和主办各类团体活动,以期加强硅谷与中国各相关团队的交流和对接。目前,筹委会中的地点筹备组正紧锣密鼓开展场地筛选的工作,硅谷食堂落地之日即将到来。


SV Café Invites Silicon Valley Elites to Join Its Upcoming Launch

SAN JOSE, Calif. – The Launching Committee of SV Café, a Silicon Valley-based cross-border crowd-funding platform, announced its invitation to new talents, welcoming Silicon Valley elites with all backgrounds to join and contribute.

The announcement was made on the third core meeting of the SV Café Launching Committee (the Committee) in the Bay Area on Jan. 4, 2015. Those who attended include Secretary General and core members of the SV Café Launching Committee, as well as Professionals from various fields such as Real Estate, Finance and Startup Investment. The meeting focused on the unique concept and understanding about crowd-funding, and further developed the launching plan for SV Café.

The Committee invites more Silicon Valley elites with interest to attend its future meetings, believing that the process of meeting and discussion is itself the process of team-building and member filtering. Every Committee member agrees that a highly passionate and cohesive team is essential to professional, effective and efficient discussion and decision making. Effort made by every single member is appreciated by the whole organization, while legal obligation and risk taking are clearly defined and separate. The SV Café Launching Committee now has 10 core members, and expects to expand the team to include 10 to 40 more members who share the same passion and enthusiasm. Every new member will enjoy equal say and decision-making power as the existing members, while flexible schedule are allowed and least commitment required.

About SV Café

SV Café is a crowd-funding platform that differentiates itself from similar kinds by primarily focusing on talent, idea and connection “crowd-funding” instead of the traditional money crowd-funding. Unlike an incubator, SV Café emphasizes the importance of communication, networking and opportunity developing and sharing.

SV Café devotes itself to combining the Chinese style – the experience from the success of crowd-funding China – with the Silicon Valley style, the core of which is the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship. It expects to contribute to the formation of a stronger bond between Silicon Valley and China by hosting and organizing a series of inspiring cross-border activities.

Defined as “a shared dining place”, SV Café will be run in a club and salon style in a desired location with top-quality service. It sets its mission as border crossing and resource pooling. Catering service is the basis of its operation, while the inspiration, innovation and other potentials generated from networking and communication make up its higher value. The common belief in SV Café is that connection leads to mutual trust, which further leads to opportunities of cooperation. “In SV Café, you can do business, meet with new people, find potential opportunities, raise fund from the crowd, and also have fun,” said one of the committee members. Currently, the launch of SV Café is in progress, with a dedicated team working on location selection.
