Joint Venture Silicon Valley: State Of The Valley 2016
San Jose Convention Center, San Jose CA

State of the Valley is Silicon Valley's annual "town 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, our elected representatives, educators and academics, business executives, labor and workforce leaders – for dialogue and discussion about the Valley's challenges and opportunities.

Register now for State Of The Valley 2016.

• Academia admission policy: Faculty, researchers and students from high schools, colleges or universities are invited to join us as guests for all regular 2015 WCA events. (Academia admission does not apply to events which don't offer a walk-in registration, to co-located events, or to sold-out events. Refer to the event details.) Registration codes for eligible events are sent to the department admins of academia partner schools once pre-registration is opened. We require a $5 deposit from all academia attendees, paid at the time of registration - this deposit will be refunded in full upon presentation of a valid school ID at the registration desk on the day of the event. We will try to accommodate walk-in academia attendees, but seating is only guaranteed via pre-registration and payment of the deposit. Educational institutions wishing to become a WCA academia partner should apply via email.

About The WCA

Founded in 1993, the Wireless Communications Alliance (aka "WCA") is a Silicon Valley-based, all-volunteer, non-profit corporation dedicated to providing opportunities for education, connection, and community in the wireless industry. The WCA accomplishes these goals by hosting seminars/panels; providing networking opportunities; encouraging and supporting start-ups and entrepreneurs; and helping to build and maintain bridges between business and academia. Supporting academia and technical education is a primary goal of the WCA. Located in the San Francisco Bay Area, the WCA is near several world-class universities, colleges, and think tanks. Despite the meteoric rise in mobile technology, research has shown that only 5% of incoming college freshmen identify wireless as a career goal. To help ensure a strong talent pool in the coming decade the WCA invites college students to attend our events at no charge in the hopes that exposure to the wireless industry will encourage the them to shift their major and course focus towards wireless.
