From Sherry Coutu, organiser of Silicon Valley comes to the UK, angel investor says,

“Many of you know that I’ve been working on bringing a number of iconic entrepreneurs to Cambridge.

“As part of this, we are running a company showcase of hot startups on Saturday the 20th of November. Yesterday, after we saw the quality of the submissions, we decided that it would be a good idea to invite some investors along to it as well.

“If you would like to come along, you’ll be able to see what the companies so, meet these startup CEOs and, over lunch, to meet some of the leading entrepreneurs and investors from Silicon Valley.

“This CEOs who are showcasing were nominated to participate based on referrals from investors and then only the top companies from this list were chosen to showcase their companies.

“We will be revealing the companies who are showcasing throughout the week – but I can assure you, they are a high quality!

“At the end of this showcase will be the ‘SVC2C Company of the Year award ceremony’ and a networking lunch where Reid and I announce the winner for 2010 who will receive mentoring and who will be sent, all expenses paid, to Silicon Valley to explore the opportunities for their company there.

“We will also hear how the winners from last year’s competition have gotten on. If you would like to come along, please act SUPER FAST as we expect that places for this will go very fast.”
