Silicon Valley Bank
The founders of Silicon Valley Bank set out in 1983 to capture a growing market in Northern California which until that time had been greatly underserved by commercial banks--emerging growth technology companies in the Silicon Valley. Many companies in this unique market were just getting started and had yet to realize a profit; some simply were not yet considered "creditworthy" by local community or regional banks. Since that time, Silicon Valley Bank has established a national reputation in this market based on a high level of expertise in a number of technology and life sciences niches.
