The Eighth Annual Global Technology Symposium will take place on March 23-25, 2011, in Silicon Valley.

We encourage all Symposium alumni to attend the 2011 Symposium. An agenda and registration information will be available by late summer 2010.


The Seventh Annual Global Technology Symposium concluded successfully on March 26, 2010, in Palo Alto, California. The 2010 Symposium focused on the theme of “disruptive technologies for the economic recovery.” Participants discussed questions such as:

  • Can “disruptive technologies” lead the world out of recession?

  • Are emerging markets leading the world out of recession? Are developed countries over-regulating the financial sector?

  • What is the “state of the venture capital industry” in California and abroad?

  • Can the energy industry in commercial new technology?

  • Nanotechnology: the next big thing?

  • What is the nature of leadership?

The Symposium thanks all of its sponsors, speakers, and attendees who made the 2010 Symposium the best Symposium yet.


Today, the only clear boundaries between countries are lines on maps.

New technologies are leveling the competitive playing field between industrialized and developing countries by encouraging the spread of knowledge, ideas, capital, and labor across international borders. The next big idea may come from Boston or Brussels, Beijing or Bangalore. Smart companies across the globe need to learn how to leverage these trends.

The Global Technology Symposium brings over 300 selected international leaders in business, finance, technology, and policymaking to the Stanford campus in Palo Alto, California, birthplace of innovation in Silicon Valley. There, they share insights into how entrepreneurs and blue-chip companies alike can seize the opportunities of globalization.

Speakers in previous years include venture capitalists Tim Draper, Ira Ehrenpreis, Pitch Johnson, Kate Mitchell, Heidi Rozen, Don Valentine, and Ann Winblad; political figures such as White House CTO Aneesh Chopra, former U.S. senator Gary Hart, former Secretary of Defense William Perry; former Secretary of State George Shultz, and Russian Minister of Education and Science Andrei Fursenko; management and technology gurus such as Vint Cerf, Esther Dyson, and Geoffrey Moore; and corporate leaders such as former Intel CEO Craig Barrett, former HP CEO Carly Fiorina, VMware CEO Diane Greene, and BP Capital founder T. Boone Pickens.

Join an exclusive network of Silicon Valley’s opinion leaders who will drive technology-led growth in the years ahead.
