As a foundation to its business model, Mirador uses its unique and extensive global corporate network to help executives of large corporations build and strengthen relationships with key business, government and academic leaders. Mirador hosts leading executives at networking events primarily held in New York City and Silicon Valley. The firm has organized business-networking dinners featuring the CEO of Philips, the CEO of the Legend Group (largest PC manufacturer in China), the CEO of Satyam (NYSE:SAY), the CTO of Hewlett Packard and the President of AT&T Labs. Founders, CEOs, CIOs, and other "C-level" and key executives from leading corporations participate in these events. Mirador has also created social events such as high-end wine dinners featuring rare, hard to find wines. These events have had outstanding success in attracting high-level executives. While these wine dinners are ostensibly social, they provide a relaxed forum in which executives can build relationships and further significant and meaningful business objectives.
Mirador includes in its events, CEOs of the portfolio companies of the VCs with whom it is partnered. The response from these early stage companies has been overwhelmingly positive.
Mirador's Advisory Board members include Jim Guzy, Sr., co-funding founder of Intel Corporation and Board member from the start.
