Global Upside, a portfolio company of the Global Upside Corporation, is proud to be a Beverage Cart sponsor at the FEISV Sixteenth Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament. Organized by the Financial Executives International Silicon Valley (FEISV), the event raises scholarship funds for deserving college students studying accounting and finance at five Bay Area universities.

The Annual Golf Event took place on June 1st and was open to everyone with an interest in supporting the scholarships. It included an afternoon of golf, followed by a sit-down dinner at the prestigious Palo Alto Hills Golf and Country Club. Like all FEISV events, it provided an opportunity for the growing community of Silicon Valley finance executives to meet and network.

With approximately 400 local financial executives in its membership, FEISV is one of the largest and most active chapters of FEI. FEISV brings together Silicon Valley leaders with an active program of professional development, networking activities and community support. The scholarship program provides scholarships for 10 to 12 finance and accounting students at five Bay Area universities: Cal State East Bay (formerly Hayward State), San Jose State University, Santa Clara University, Menlo College, and UC Berkeley.

“We appreciate Global Upside’s support of our community as well as our scholarship program. We think it is important to provide financial assistance to those young students who have shown the ability and determination to be successful in the world of finance and accounting,” said John Beck, FEISV Past President and Scholarship Golf Chair.

“The FEISV Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament serves a vital community purpose, and provides another venue for FEISV members to connect in a non-business environment,” said Rick Giorgetti, Gava Talent Solutions Vice President, Staffing. “We urge FEISV members to come out and join us for a fun afternoon of friendly competition.”

“We are delighted to sponsor the FEISV Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament,” said Global Upside CEO Ragu Bhargava. “At Global Upside, we believe education is a priority for the US, and the FEISV program makes a valuable contribution right here in the Bay Area.”
