2011 Silicon Valley Technology Innovation & Entrepreneurship Forum
The global economy is undergoing a period of rapid change, with nations still recovering from the recent economic crisis. At the same time, technological advancement is progressing at an unprecedented rate, and businesses are anxiously looking for ways to take advantage of this climate of innovation. Fostering relationships with businesses in other countries is often the best way to bring together ideas with the talent and funding to make them reality.
With that in mind, 99People, Inc. has established the first Silicon Valley Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum. This gathering of business professionals from China and the United States is expected to be a leading venue for establishing business partnerships between the two countries. Up to 10,000 attendees are expected, including high-ranking government officials from China, and mayors from Chinese and American cities.
The forum will cover a wide variety of technology-related topics, including Internet connection technologies, green energy, cloud computing and issues in several high-technology industries, including the finance, biotech and semiconductor sectors.
Sponsors for the event include:
California State Friendship Committee (CSFC)
Silicon Valley Information Business Alliance (SVIBA)
China IT Services
Among the highlights of the forum will be a keynote address by President Bill Clinton, founder of the William J. Clinton Foundation and 42nd President of the United States.” President Clinton’s public speeches describe the challenge of globalization, emphasize our growing interdependence, and point the way toward a common future based on shared goals and values.
In addition, attendees will enjoy a special address by Speaker Pro Tempore of the California State Assembly, Fiona Ma. The attending mayors from more than 20 Chinese and American cities will also hold a forum on technological innovation between the two countries.
