Item 5.07. Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

On May 23, 2014, Firsthand Technology Value Fund, Inc., held its Annual Meeting of Shareholders to (1) elect two directors, and (2) ratify the selection of Tait Weller & Baker LLP as the independent registered public accountant. At the close of business on the record date, March 14, 2014, an aggregate of 9,072,032 shares of common stock were issued and outstanding.

Proposal 1. The election of Director:

Nominee For Withheld Broker Non-Vote Kevin Landis 4,251,280 289,440 3,115,847 Kimun Lee 4,142,183 398,538 3,115,847

Pursuant to the foregoing votes, each nominee listed above was elected to serve on the Company's Board of Directors as a Class III director to serve until the 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and until his successor is duly elected and qualified. A broker non-vote occurs when a broker holding shares for a beneficial owner does not vote on a particular proposal because the broker does not have discretionary voting power for that particular item and has not received instructions from the beneficial owner or other persons entitled to vote.

Proposal 2. The ratification of the selection of Tait Weller & Baker as the Company's independent registered accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2014:
