Through its subsidiary, Future Forward Events, Silverweave hosts invitation-only dinners and multi-day events for technology and life sciences executives.

Founded in 2000 by industry veterans, Future Forward Events designs executive programs for the technology and life sciences industries. Each program is developed with input from influential advisors within each industry. These advisors help to define the topics and speakers that are most relevant to the industry each year. Each program is intentionally limited to not more than 200 participants to maximize personal interaction and networking. Participants are invited based on input from the board of advisors for each conference.
