Some Links to Helpful Organizations


All of the websites below are well known resources in SV and host conferences and networking events for entrepreneurs. It's always advised to keep an active network going. Some of these conferences can get pretty expensive, I tend to pick and choose which are worth the time and money based on the possible value of learning and connections it can provide. I'll try and update this list as I come across more worthwhile organizations.
