Mark your calendar and get your tickets for the 5th Annual, 2014 Silicon Valley Leadership Summit (SVLLS), a premier leadership development event. The theme of the 2014 summit is, “Rising up to Leadership – It’s Time! (Es Tiempo)”, and the goal is to inspire our attendees to build and continue to strengthen their leadership skills. The Leadership Summit offers:

  • a gathering of entrepreneurs, executives, innovators, educators, policy makers, and outstanding students is an event designed to foster change
  • powerful and insightful sessions provided by nationally recognized speakers on current and emerging leadership and business topics
  • invaluable networking opportunities

Additionally, the Silicon Valley Latino Leadership Summit has also included the 2nd annual Young Latina Project (YLP). Through a competitive application process, a group of students will be receiving “Summit Scholarships”. These students will not only have an opportunity to meet top business leaders but will also be invited to participate in the Ivy League Project.

This year SVLLS will once again collaborate with the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, choosing students to attend their Leadership on the Fast Track (LOFT), which will feature a special breakout workshop on application building and a coding session.  The LOFT session will run concurrently to the SVLL Summit in the afternoon.
