Spring Break in Silicon Valley

What is Spring Break in Silicon Valley (SBinSV)?

Spring Break in Silicon Valley (SBinSV) is designed to give students a firsthand look at the companies, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists, and their way of life (both personal and professional) in San Francisco and California’s Silicon Valley. This program is open to students from all majors, all schools and colleges, and all degree programs.

Application and Deadline

The application for SBinSV 2018 is now closed.  Check back for 2019 dates and deadlines. 

Visits and Structure

SBinSV will focus on face-to-face interactions on site with representatives of incubators, start-up companies, and educational institutions like Stanford University. Previous SBinSV trips have included visits to LinkedIn, Facebook, Google, Twitter, Evernote, Tesla, Klout, eBay, and Microsoft.

Students typically visit between 20 and 25 companies over the course of the 5-day trip, and have a chance to interact with alumni and do a bit of sightseeing along the way. The exact makeup of the trip visits varies from year to year, and depends on input from participating students.
