Bravo Launches Interactive Experience for its New Reality Series, "Start-Ups Silicon Valley" Bravo's SVP of Marketing, Ellen Stone, Discusses the Network's "Silicon Valley Status" Project with [itvt]'s Tracy SwedlowIn this recorded interview, [itvt]'s Tracy Swedlow talks to Ellen Stone, SVP of marketing at Bravo Media, about Silicon Valley Status (SVS), an interactive experience that Bravo is launching today to enhance its new Randi Zuckerberg-executive-produced reality series, "Start-Ups: Silicon Valley" (premieres Monday, November 5th).
Silicon Valley Status, which was developed in partnership with interactive marketing agency Campfire, centers on a digital hub located at SiliconValleyStatus.com, where fans of the show can, among other things, discover their own "SVS score," obtain pointers for increasing their score, and see how they stack up against other viewers and various "Bravolebrities." Each viewer's SVS score is based on three social factors, according to Bravo--popularity, influence and "the 'It' factor"--and draws on an analysis of the viewer's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram presence.
The SVS site also features videos, which offer "insider" tips on improving one's SVS score from the "Start-Ups: Silicon Valley" cast. The videos include tutorials on how, for example, to promote a positive social-media image, how to get more re-tweets, and how to capture an effective profile picture. Viewers who sign up for the SVS experience will automatically be entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win a ticket to the show's premiere party, which will take place November 4th in San Francisco.

Prior to the airing of the fourth installment of Soledaid O'Brien's BLACK IN AMERICA series which will focus on the lack of diversity and representation of black entrepreuners in Silicon Valley, a heated debate has occurred on the web.
Michael Arrington, a Silicon Valley investor and capital venturalist, stated that he has difficulty finding new high tech business startup wholly owned, initiated or operated by African Americans.
The South Bay(San Jose CA surrounding area) is the home of many well known high tech companies. The corporate headquarters of companies such as GOOGLE, CISCO, APPLE, HP, FACEBOOK, SUN MICROSYSTEMS, ORACLE and the location of major universities such as Stanford, UC Berkley, creates an environment whereby the ideas of the best & the brightest, coupled with financial backing of venture capital investment companies, fosters a climate of entrepreunership.
The admissions requirements to these highly academically competitive universities are some of the toughest in the country. The percentage of AA undergraduates is 10%; graduate students 3%. This could account for the difficulties Mr. Arrington alluded to in his interview. If more black students excelled in math and science subjects, could this acheivement gap be closed?
