Balancing Global Innovation and Tech Dominance

Since the end of the last century America has been the dominant global tech and innovation leader. For the first time in decades, that position is being challenged. In an era of lightning fast scientific discovery and unprecedented technological innovation, with rising powers and new markets, how can the US better center itself for the coming tech and innovation competitions? What can Silicon Valley do to better position itself and maintain its importance and position as the center for innovation of the world? How can the US government help American tech stay dominant? What are the threats to US tech dominance and how can those be overcome?

For our panel discussion, we are pleased to welcome:

Dr. Sarah Sewall, Executive Vice President for Policy, In-Q-Tel.

Dr. Kori Schake, Director of Foreign and Defense Policy Studies, American Enterprise Institute (AEI)

Dr. Bilal Zuberi, Partner, Lux Capital

Moderated by Will Knight, Senior Writer, WIRED

This one-hour live virtual event and Q&A will take place on Wednesday, April 14 at 1100 PDT/ 1400 EDT.
