Presentation Overview

ASPs, Peer2Peer, B2B, B2C, consumer, prosumer, optical, nano, security, storage, telecom, speech recognition, anti-spam, internet portal, semantic Web, VOIP, G3, search, social networking, blogging, RSS, materials sciences, outsourcing.... These are all examples of trends in Silicon Valley that arrived with a splash and created buzz among the entrepreneurial and VC community. Some of these ideas crashed, many remain hot sectors today, and some left and now have returned stronger than ever. Join us for an evening of lively panel discussion that will include interactive dialogue and audience Q&A. You will hear from VCs as they discuss trends in venture investing and from entrepreneurs who have recently raised venture funding.
