Silicon Valley International Invention Festival (SVIIF)

The Silicon Valley International Invention Festival (SVIIF) strives to make state-of-the-art inventions known around the world by providing a unique opportunity for inventors to market their inventions not only overseas but also within the American market.  With a high attendance of multi-national companies, investors, entrepreneurs, and financiers, SVIIF has become a platform on which inventors, industries, and businesses can explore opportunities for collaboration and commercialization of their innovations.
