Entrepreneurship Week USA 2007
Entrepreneurship in San Jose and the Global World
The 21st Century will be in the hands of those who can take their ideas and make them transpire. While the United States currently holds the edge as an entrepreneurial society and is active in the global economy, the future shows clear signs of tremendous economic competition from abroad. It is apparent that in the future Americans will need to generate more ideas and better innovations if the United States is to stay ahead of the growing global economies. SDForum and the Centre for Entrepreneurship at San Jose State have partnered to create one of the only events in the Bay Area participating in National Entrepreneurship Week, celebrating entrepreneurship and recognizing the city of San Jose as one of the major centers for innovation and entrepreneurship in the U.S.A.
Come hear the newly elected Mayor of San Jose, Chuck Reed; Gina Poole, VP, Innovation & University Relations, IBM, and Kevin Nix, co-Founder Siebel Systems and currently EVP & CMO, Roamware, one of the fastest growing companies in San Jose. They will speak about entrepreneurship in San Jose and beyond, in the global world. The speaker event will be followed by a networking reception sponsored by Deloitte.
