The Silicon Club was established to provide all senior executives of the Israeli microelectronics industry with a permanent meeting place to address critical operational challenges and other issues that impact the entire microelectronics ecosystem. The club exclusive gatherings are done in a non-formal atmosphere and serves as THE place for meeting industry colleagues, exchange thoughts, discuss industry challenges and act together to resolve major business issues and achieve true global collaboration.
The club is specifically intended for C level executives - CEOs/Presidents, CTOs, COOs, Vice President of Operations, and Vice President of Engineering from microelectronics companies and Partners/Executives within the Israeli venture capital community.
The Club agenda is set by a professional steering committee which consists of several key figures from the leading multinational high technology companies (e.g. Intel, Marvel, Texas Instruments, Freescale, etc.) as well as CEOs of major local fabless and academy professors.
Each club meeting consists of about 150-200 industry executives and is dedicated to a specific topic. The meetings are divided to two major parts:
Executive Networking- Great networking opportunities for microelectronics professionals from the Israeli microelectronics community.
Speaking session - short lectures and panel discussion by senior figures from the microelectronics industry as well as from the High tech world
