Es Tiempo, LLC., is proud to announce the 8th annual Silicon Valley Latino Leadership Summit (SVLLS), on May 6, 2017. The Summit will offer compelling and insightful sessions provided by nationally recognized speakers. This year’s theme is “Executive and Entrepreneurial Leadership, Mentoring Up” – It’s Time! (Es Tiempo)”. Our goal is to inspire rising professionals through an interactive discussion with top industry leaders.

The 2017 Silicon Valley Leadership Summit has something for everyone, whether you are new in your profession, a seasoned entrepreneur, or an executive. As always, we allow various networking opportunities throughout the day. This is your chance to make those contacts you have been waiting for. SVLLS is a “win-win” opportunity that should not be missed.

New! This year we’re excited to announce an exciting partnership with All Stars Helping Kids (ASHK). SVLLS & ASHK will be co-hosting an evening gala to raise funding for the excellent E-STEAM-based initiatives offered through this outstanding non-profit. Please save the date, October 14, 2017.

We thank you for your support.
