Decentralization of Silicon Valley

Haraldur Thorleifsson, Sylvain Carle

03 Feb, 9:50 pm

How has saving the world moved beyond the hands of tech giants? We invite you for this challenging yet enlightening panel to discuss how recent global events have impacted the supremacy of Silicon Valley.


This exceptional panel brings two worlds together : Twitter Design Director Haraldur Thorleifsson and Second Muse Senior Director Sylvain Carle. They will tackle questions that are on everybody’s tongue : Is our collective belief in the power of technology the savior in the face of challenges? Can we count on the tech giants to address the problems they’ve created? And ultimately Does the Valley Matter anymore?

This panel is moderated by Vyara Ndejuru. Vyara Ndejuru is a Marketing Executive, Branding, Start-up advisor and Community Builder.
