VC Panel Discussion

Our November meeting featured a vc panel discussion that was moderated by Amos Barzilay. The topic was “Early stage high tech investment in the new environment" and the panelists were Julien Nguyen, Bruce Crocker, Naval Ravikant and William T. Charlton. Amos was able to spice up the discussion, and use humor to elicit candid and personal responses from the panel. Overall this was an educational and entertaining experience.

The Annual Symposium

Our Annual Symposium is tentatively scheduled for February 10th, 2004. This year we will focus on STORAGE. Storage has been one of the major forces behind the computer revolution in the last few decades, obeying Moor’s law and doubling in capacity every 18 months. But cheaper, larger and more ubiquitous storage presents new problems in architecture and organization in modern distributed environments.
The Silicom Ventures Storage Symposium will offer insight into these and other issues of storage systems. Leading industry experts will join forces with members of the financial community in an informed panel discussion and open debate on where the storage industry stands today and how it will impact future development of computer networks and its related business opportunities.
The event will be in partnership with the Israeli consulate.
