Meet Skip

I am Skip Vaccarello, a 35-year Silicon Valley business executive and the author of the bestselling book, Finding God in Silicon Valley: Spiritual Journeys in a High-Tech World. I help leaders discover their purpose and mission in life and how their purpose relates to their work. My mission is to help people find a “Better Way to Work and a Better Way to Live.” In particular, I help leaders run their organizations more effectively, profitably, and ethically by applying biblical principles to their work.

I am available as a speaker, consultant, professor, and mentor, and offer written material, including my bestselling book Finding God in Silicon Valley.

"As a successful Silicon Valley business leader, author, and person of faith, Skip Vaccarello, offers a wonderful balance of wisdom and experience as a business consultant, mentor, and speaker."

Book ‘Finding God in Silicon Valley’

My recent book, Finding God in Silicon Valley, is about how God is working in the lives of people in Silicon Valley—venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, leaders of major companies, innovators in non-profit start-ups, scientists, and technologists. You will be inspired and challenged as you read the very personal stories.

The book provides lessons for anyone who has struggled with faith issues. You will read how these leaders got beyond the trappings of financial and business success to find God. How they overcame personal struggle and even tragedy to come to know Christ. How they reconciled faith and reason and the compatibility of faith and science. And how they discovered meaning, purpose, and a calling for their lives.

God is doing the seemingly impossible in Silicon Valley—changing the hearts and attitudes of the affluent and successful, and those desperately pursuing riches, power, and prestige. Having a tradition of disrupting the status quo with technology, Silicon Valley may be poised to challenge its perception as a wasteland of faith as well.

"In a thought-provoking manner, Skip Vaccarello provides a collection of amazing stories of leaders who have found God in Silicon Valley…one of the most influential but anti-God places on Earth."
