Oh Look, Jony Ive Ate Pizza With Silicon Valley’s Most Powerful People Last Night [Image]


Everybody wants to be Jony Ive’s friend, so he probably gets invited to a lot of the dinners where Silicon Valley’s elite just hangout, scarf down pizza, and get blitzed on wine. We rarely see pictures of such events, but last night a picture was posted of Sir Jony himself hanging out with 11 of the most powerful people in Silicon Valley.

The dinner was hosted by Nirav Tolia – a longtime Silicon Valley entrepreneur – and featured the CEOs of Twitter, Yelp, Path, Dropbox, Yahoo, and other companies. What’d they do besides eat pizza? Did a wild night of¬†karaoke¬†follow over at Marrisa Mayer’s manor? Who knows? Who cares? But we’re glad Jony gets to hangout with people outside the mothership from time to time.

Here’s a list of everyone that was present at the dinner:

  • Drew Houston, CEO, Dropbox
  • Trevor Traina, Traina Interactive
  • Dave Morin, CEO, Path
  • Dick Costolo, CEO, Twitter
  • Dion Lim, education startup CEO
  • Nirav Tolia, CEO, Nextdoor:
  • Jeremy Stoppelman, CEO, Yelp
  • Michael Birch, cofounder, Bebo
  • Mike Cassidy, director, Google X
  • Jony Ive, SVP, Apple
  • Marissa Mayer, CEO, Yahoo
  • Bret Taylor, CEO, Quip
