Why, oh Why, Mr. Vivek Wadhwa?
He is a highly accomplished Entrepreneur, Writer (TechCrunch, WSJ, & others), Academic & Researcher! His appetite for curiosity and desire to change the world is extraordinary.
He was named a "Leader of Tomorrow" by Forbes magazine.
He was one of six "2012 Outstanding Americans by Choice" recipients, a distinction awarded by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.
. . . ."Top 100 Global Thinkers" by Foreign Policy Magazine.
Some of his recent work -- "Innovating Women Leaning In to Tell Their Own Stories"
The list goes on and on. But the point is: You CANNOT MISS THIS!
Vivek Wadhwa has a lot of crazy ideas. Like. . . startups shouldn't hire
MBA grads. And age is an advantage in the startup world. And, that the
women of Silicon Valley may, in his own words, "save the world." He
must come up with these ideas because he has a lot of free time. After
all, at the moment he is only serving as Vice President of Academics and Innovation at Singularity University; executive-in-residence/adjunct professor at the Masters of Engineering Management Program and Director of Research at the Center for Research
Commercialization at Duke University's Pratt School of Engineering; a fellow at Stanford University's Arthur and Toni Rembe Rock Center for Corporate Governance; and a Distinguished Visiting Scholar at the Halle Institute for Global Learning, at Emory University. We looked for a shorter bio but couldn't find one. Vivek is a forthright advocate of diversity in business as humankind's greatest hope. And that's not crazy at all.
6:00 to 7:00 PM - Attendees' networking session
(VIP private networking session with Vivek in the Silver Lab at additional cost. We'll also feature a few of our women founders at this time.)
7:00 to 8:00 PM - Vivek's honest, authentic talk!
