The Silicon Valley Workshop exposes students to technology entrepreneurship, innovation, and leadership and continues to build an entrepreneurial community at Illinois. Students come back to campus inspired and ready to bring back the skills and knowledge they learned to the Illinois community.

The trip features corporate leaders, venture capitalists, and entrepreneurs in various stages of a startup lifecycle. Students also have opportunities to network with prominent entrepreneurial Illinois alumni.
