What is Silicon Real?

It’s a place where you can learn about the people behind the business.  Whether it’s a multi-million dollar success, or new idea raising money, the people that drive these ideas we can all learn from. 

The ecosystem of start-ups and specifically tech start-ups has been the driving force behind growth and innovation in society over the last decade.  We want to shine a light on those people that have been a part of this growth or might have a great idea and story but don’t have a large enough soapbox to be heard. 

With a growing ecosystem it sometimes becomes more difficult to be heard, raise money and get the help or mentorship that you need. 

Silicon real provides that spotlight or opportunity to be heard and also learn from other successful entrepreneurs and innovators.
