The Exponential Center

Silicon Valley is not a place. It’s a state of mind. It can be everywhere. It can uplift everyone. And, of course, that’s the idea of Exponential John Doerr, Chair, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers

One idea can become a billion dollar company. One idea can touch a billion people.

Launched in June 2016, the Exponential Center is the first museum institution devoted to capturing the legacy and advancing the future of entrepreneurship and innovation in Silicon Valley and around the world. We collect and share the stories of visionaries, disruptors, founders, and builders. We examine the birth, growth, and impact of iconic companies. We explore the Silicon Valley ecosystem model and how it can serve humanity. Our mission: to inform and inspire the next generation of changemakers.
