Hi All,

An important update: deadline extended by a week due to the high number of requests for late submission. Companies that are interested in presenting their products at Launch: Silicon Valley 2012 should send an Executive Summary of no more than 2 pages to [email protected] by Friday, May 4th.

Also, Launch: Silicon Valley 2012 will have a great roster of panels & speakers in addition to the 30 presenting companies, including:
Steve Blank – the first 50 people who register will receive a free copy of his new book “The Startup Owner’s Manual” which he has offered to sign at the event!
Vinod Khosla – to be interviewed by Emily Chang, anchor of the “Bloomberg West” technology TV show
Ray Rothrock – incoming Chair of the National Venture Capital Association, to be interviewed on the JOBS act and the IPO-OnRamp by the Mercury News’s Chris O’Brien
The Changing Face of Venture Capital – Jeff Clavier, who has grown from angel, to Super-Angel, now VC fund manager; Tim Connor, who was GP at a large fund, & who left to start his own smaller fund; Pete Sonsini of NEA, one of the largest funds in Silicon Valley, with over $11B in committed capital
Where are they now? – the founders of Launch: Silicon Valley alumni Smaato, Steelhouse & Zuora on what’s happened since they launched at Launch: Silicon Valley in earlier years?

Co-presented by SVForum, Garage Technology Ventures and Microsoft, Launch: Silicon Valley is a product launch platform for cash strapped startups. L:SV is designed to uncover and showcase products and services from the most exciting of the newest startups in information technology, mobility, digital media, next generation internet, life sciences and clean energy. L:SV2012 is particularly interested in receiving applications regarding products in the following areas- Artificial Intelligence/Robotics, Augmented Reality, Cloud Computing, Computer visual & audio recognition & response, Data Analytics/Business Intelligence, EduTech, Health-IT, and Next Generation Collaboration.

L:SV2012 will feature new companies that are ready for launch, but are not yet well known. These are companies that have a product or service available (as of June 5, 2012), but have not been out in the marketplace for more than a few months. Up to 30 of the most interesting companies will be invited to leverage Launch: Silicon Valley 2012 as the springboard to launch their product or service, and to network with the audience of Silicon Valley’s top movers and shakers at the Pre-L:SV Event Party on the evening of June 4, as well as at the event itself on June 5.

Thanks.
