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
