Joint Venture builds the framework for regional thought, analysis and action by assembling Silicon Valley’s leaders in business, government, academia, labor and the nonprofit sector to assess our challenges, reach consensus on the best strategies for response and work on solutions together. That’s the Joint Venture way.

Joint Venture was born in that environment, as an experiment in regional thought and action on issues that do not respect city limits, county borders or state lines: economic development, infrastructure, transportation, communications, education, health care, disaster planning, climate change and more.

Early skeptics doubted the notion that otherwise provincial and disparate interests could convene for a common purpose. Some still do, but the greater goal has largely prevailed. Competitive regions were largely domestic at first, but today span oceans to encompass Shanghai, Beijing, India, Ireland, Eastern Europe, South Asia and beyond.

You and your organization can join with hundreds of leaders working in teams on our current initiatives in such areas as climate prosperity, economic development, and wireless communications. Please take time to visit our initiative pages and contact us to become involved in our work.
