What is the State of the Valley Conference?

State of the Valley is an old-fashioned “town hall” meeting, a tradition at least as old as our nation’s founding, when concerned citizens met on the village green to mobilize for the challenges ahead. In that same spirit, Joint Venture’s town meeting convenes the entire region—concerned citizens and stakeholders, thought leaders and opinion makers, journalists, students and academics, our elected representatives and their professional staff, business leaders, labor and workforce leaders, venture capitalists and others—for dialogue and discussion about the Valley’s challenges and opportunities.

To inform the discussion our principal tool is the Silicon Valley Index, a nationally-recognized publication that has been telling the Silicon Valley story since 1995. The indicators measure the strength of our economy and the health of our community, highlighting challenges and providing a data-rich foundation for decision making.

State of the Valley has adapted to accommodate current health mandates and will be a hybrid event:

  • The conference will take place live and in person at CHM for an audience capped at 300 people (masks are recommended but not required). People will be seated at sponsored tables and your organization can sponsor one of the few remaining tables by contacting the Joint Venture office. The in-person gathering will conform to guidelines issued by the public health officers of San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.
  • The event will be simultaneously broadcast to a sizable audience in the Bay Area and beyond, via Brandlive. Registration ($35) is simple with a credit card. Registered participants will receive access to 100% of the proceedings, the ability to chat and post comments, and a downloadable PDF version of the 2023 Silicon Valley Index. A few days before the conference online attendees will receive an email with all the details on how to access the virtual event.
