The Silicon Valley World Internet Center is providing a neutral environment for start-up and emerging companies to demonstrate and market their "out-of-the-box" eBusiness-related software, service, or technology to selected Center clients. A few companies will be invited to participate in this program on a quarterly basis. Companies currently in contact or associated with the Center (non-clients of the Center) are especially encouraged to submit an application. For the immediate future, there is no fee to companies selected to participate.

Companies with an interest are encouraged to contact the Center's Director of Programs, listed below.

* Ability to demonstrate and market your eBusiness-related software, service, or technology to global technology clients of the Center;
* Feedback on your eBusiness-related software, service, or technology from the Center's Technology Council and/or Business Council, made up of SiliconValley thought leaders and visionaries;
* Promotion of your Tech Demo (product, service, or technology) in the Center's weekly eNewsletter (goes out to 5,000+ local and global individuals) and Center Web site;
* Ability to network in a professional environment with high-level peers; and
* Possible funding (preliminary at this point, but a longer-term possibility).

Those interested in being considered for this opportunity are asked to submit as much as possible of the following items. ** This information will assist the Center to match your service, product, or technology as well as your objectives with interests and objectives of Center clients.

1) Executive summary of the company, including:
a) overview of its service, product, or technology
b) target market c) business and/or revenue models

4) If participated in past Center programs, send date of program and name of company representative; and

Information will be considered privileged and only shared with those in attendance at the Tech Demo & Discussion once application has been approved. Proprietary information should NOT be submitted to the Center.
