Liana Braendli grew up around innovation in Silicon Valley, CA (San Jose specifically) where together her parents have been in 12 different start-ups, with no plans on quitting anytime soon. She moved to Atlanta for Georgia Tech so she could be around fascinating Science and Technology while studying what sheâs passionate about. Liana graduated with a degree in Econ & International Affairs then went to work for Capgemini in their Business Intelligence Practice. In 2014 she had the opportunity to switch to Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) and from the first interview knew sheâd found home.
Whether you have questions on finance, banking, raising money, Silicon Valley, economic news or just want to talk through ideas, Liana Braendli is available and eager to discuss, especially with fellow Techies, no strings attached.
