Silicon Valley Meets Silicon Alley

  • Stockholm Chamber of Commerce 2 Brunnsgatan Stockholm, Stockholms län, 111 38 Sweden (map)

Half a Day That May Change Your Coming Days

Silicon Valley in the south part of the San Francisco Bay Area has in the past decades established itself as the leading region in the world for tech corporations and startups, which today is apparent throughout the region's culture. New York City, traditionally known for its financial, health care, and retail industries, has in recent years grown to become an important region for the tech, design, and communication industries; minting the name "Silicon Alley" from the street in central Manhattan where many of the city's tech firms now have their offices.

SACC New York and SACC SF/SV welcome you to a half day Forum which will dive deep into the cultures of these two dynamic regions on different coasts of the U.S. Keynote speakers and panel discussions will explain the U.S. startup scene, clarify differences and similarities between the ecosystems in New York and San Francisco, and demystify how entrepreneurs make it across the Atlantic.

Keynote Address:
Ambassador Azita Raji, U.S. Ambassador to Sweden
