Silicon Valley Bank Announces SVB Tech Investors Forum 2005
Company News | September 20, 2004
As the premier financial services provider dedicated to emerging and established technology companies, Silicon Valley Bank was recognized for its unique ability to bring together the best high-growth companies in the marketplace and small-cap investors looking for prospective investment opportunities at the first SVB Tech Investors Forum held in San Francisco earlier this month. At the inaugural event, 76 public and private technology companies presented to investors who were present at the two-day forum.
"Like many firms, we have gravitated toward larger-cap tech stocks over the last decade, but the SVB Tech Investors Forum reminded me how stimulating and potentially rewarding small cap tech investing can be. In fact, we intend to follow-up on at least a half dozen of the companies we were introduced to at the Forum," said Robert Merkle of Hotchkiss Associates, LLC in Chicago. "This type of event was sorely needed, since smaller tech firms are an often-ignored segment of the market. We have Silicon Valley Bank to thank for filling the gap successfully with this event."
