2013 Silicon Valley Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum

With a mission to "explore the future of innovation" and cultivate business partnerships between the United States and China, the third annual Silicon Valley Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum (SVIEF) packs its schedule with speeches, panel discussions, and networking opportunities. This year, the keynote address and leadership dialogue will be given by two uniquely qualified individuals: Al Gore and Steve Wozniak. The former, who served as the 45th Vice President of the United States, helped usher the internet into existence. The latter not only co-founded Apple Computers, but is now the chief scientist of the data company Fusion-io.

Following the opening remarks, the event breaks up into panel discussions and roundtables on timely high-tech topics such as big data, new energy, cloud computing, and whether cyborgs should have tear ducts or laser ducts. A "Women in Innovation" forum showcases leaders of the world's tech industries, and a networking session provides the opportunity to make valuable connections. And the next big breakthrough in technology might happen at the SVIEF Start-Up Contest, which tests budding entrepreneurs' mettle with a panel of judges made up of U.S. and Chinese venture capitalists.
