Silicon Valley Fellowship: Fireside chat with mentors and alumni

Friday, January 19th, 18:30, WAO PL7, Isola, Milano.


After the speeches, the networking aperitivo will start with food, drinks, and great conversation!

The Silicon Valley Fellowship is a program tailored for tech enthusiasts, aspiring startup founders, researchers, and professionals eager to truly understand how the world's capital of innovation works and accelerate their careers.

Through the Next Gen Fund by Gomry, in partnership with the Fondazione Carla Mercurio, we're empowering the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs and offering financial support that ranges from partial coverage to total funding for courses, flights, and accommodation (possibly at the Gomry House). Every application is unique, and we'll assess each on its merit and need until all spots are filled and the budget is exhausted.

Follow us on Instagram, LinkedIn, and TikTok, where you can find advice and stories from our mentors and mentees!

See you there!

Talk with Danielle, a VC investor at 1517 Fund, managing $160M in committed capital, and previously co-founder of the Thiel Fellowship, a program that, over a decade, has welcomed 200+ founders from renowned companies like Ethereum, Figma, Luminar Technologies, and Scale AI. The alums have founded over 30 firms valued at over $1 billion, nearly 10 becoming billionaires. The Thiel Fellowship, in conjunction with Z Fellows, has been the main driver and inspiration for the Silicon Valley Fellowship.
