Our Silicon Valley office runs with the speed and energy of the many start-ups that surround it. Why? Because like them, we, too, are entrepreneurs who want to excel. We carry with us the same spirit of inventive problem solving that characterizes the region – with a dash of mischief for good measure. Everyone rolls up their sleeves here, so expect senior experts doing hands on work. In Silicon Valley, the question is not, “if,” but “how.”

24 Hours in Silicon Valley
Start your day at Breakfast at Buck’s, the Woodside restaurant that is a regular choice for the VC crowd. Listen carefully while you’re eating and you’ll likely hear a start-up CEO pitching his business idea at an adjacent table. Then, drive down Highway 280 to Sand Hill Road and head into Menlo Park. While the road itself doesn’t look like much, the firms that line its northern side are some of the best-known names in the venture community such as, Sequoia, Greylock and Kleiner Perkins.
Wave to the Stanford campus and the former Xerox PARC which incubated so many of history’s great tech entrepreneurs, as you drive by, and head into residential Palo Alto to 367 Addison Avenue, the site of the garage in which HP was founded. Take photos. Dream of your own entrepreneurial adventure.
Now, drive to Mountain View. Stop on Castro Street and have lunch at one of the area’s many cool ethnic restaurants. Mountain View is the home of numerous start-ups, as well as large companies like Google and LinkedIn along with the NASA Ames Research Center at historic Moffat Airfield.
Afterwards, make your way to Cupertino for a visit to Apple’s headquarters. Their company store is the only place in the world that sells Apple gear, so don’t miss the chance to buy a t-shirt that says, “I visited the Mother Ship.”
Head back up the Peninsula on Highway 101 to our offices in downtown San Mateo. Around the corner, you’ll find Hero City at Draper University, a unique co-working space that plays host to entrepreneurs, VCs, and marketers like us every day. It’s a vibrant place for a meeting, starting with its Tesla reception desk, so check it out if you need a place to brainstorm or get your creative juices flowing. Just two doors down Third Avenue is the space where YouTube started. The company moved long ago, but its two founders are back in town, with offices down on B Street.
Once you’ve had your fill of the Valley, head north up 101 for some San Francisco nightlife!
