Join Us for Our Weekly Pub

(Pub Talks are listed below)

Our weekly pubs are held every Thursday from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.

The Pub is an informal networking event where mid- to high-level executives meet to network and engage in business opportunities. At 6:00 p.m. a company gives a Pub Talk which lasts 10-15 minutes with a short Q&A period afterwards.

As always, the Pub is a great place to come and meet people from the Silicon Valley and from other parts of the world. Representatives from small start-ups to major companies join in the exchange at the Center Pub.

It's... "The best reason to take off work early on Thursdays."

The dress is casual and there is no fee. Just bring your good ideas!

Companies interested in giving a Pub Talk should contact
Venilde Jeronimo, the Center's Director of Programs, by email (
