Silicon Valley 50
The "Silicon Valley 50" highlights the top 50 Irish or Irish-American executives making a significant impact in and around Silicon Valley within their field of technology. These individuals exhibit the creativity, intelligence, dedication and determination necessary to compete and succeed in the competitive world of technology.
One hundred top-ranking business chiefs from around the world are to offer to help run Irish state agencies free of charge. Under plans revealed by expatriate technology bosses in Silicon Valley, leading lights from the Irish community overseas will even travel at their own cost to sit on public sector boards. Once a list of 100 leaders has been completed, it will be made public and handed to the Government, which will be asked to match an individual's experience with a relevant board.
The ITLG Silicon Valley Mentorship Program offers a unique opportunity to provide mentoring and invaluable hands-on experience to participants, working at a U.S. technology corporation for one year. The objective of the program is to position participants to return to Ireland with the skills and experience necessary to start businesses, and to foster the growth and development of tomorrow's executives in their native communities.
