Focused on business retention, expansion, recruitment and regional branding

silicon valley IDEA (Initiative to Drive Economic Advancement) is about solutions and collaboration focused on business retention, expansion and recruitment by addressing our region's most pressing challenges around Business Velocity, Quality of Life and Regional Branding.

By bringing together industry leaders and community partners, silicon valley IDEA moves rapidly from challenge identification, to collaborative and creative solutions, to activation. 

Through silicon valley IDEA, The SVO engages in public policy advocacy and lobbying efforts at the local, regional, state and federal level to address Business Velocity, Quality of Life and Regional Branding challenges. 

Policy positions on issues originate through SVO member participation in one of the seven working groups that make recommendations on policy positions to The SVO Executive Committee and The SVO Board of Directors.
