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.
