It was a privilege to work with the team at SVIYP and our organization is incredibly thankful for the continued education, support, and encouragement. Everyone involved provided incredibly valuable feedback and expertise which directly contributed to our growth and future success.
– Chelsie Lee 

Co-Founder  & CEO Shipsi U.S.A

The SVIYP team played a vital role as we dealt with product development and raising seed funding. They introduced us to key people, developing into important partnerships vital to our business. They assisted in our funding process by facilitating introductions to Skydeck, Bee Partners, and others. I highly appreciated my time with the SVIYP team in helping me to grow my business and be successful within Silicon Valley and beyond.

– MArio ornelas 

Co-Founder  & CEO zonetap, inc

The SVIYP team helped us build long-term relationships with key players in Silicon Valley, also, putting together a top board of directors and advisors. We were introduced to investors and invited to attend/present at highly selective events in Silicon Valley. This helped us work on partnerships, increase our company exposure, gain access to market, and learn “how Silicon Valley Works” from the inside. Our company has benefited immensely, it’s been night and day since I met them.

– Manuel tiglio 

Ceo & chairman of the board, fastechMedia inc

Our experience with the SVIYP Team and Process has been absolutely fantastic.  Startup Veterans evaluating our Pitch and providing us with content specific to our areas of need has been incredibly helpful to our team and business.
