May 1-2, 2018
Palo Alto, California

Stanford’s Impact on the Silicon Valley Economic Ecosystem – Creativity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Join us in Palo Alto at historic Stanford Research Park for our next Insights into Research Parks. Programming will include a series of panel discussions, a driving tour of Stanford Research Park, and a self-guided tour of Stanford University campus.  Panelists will include Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, policymakers and real estate professionals, who will lead discussions around these central questions:

  • - What makes Silicon Valley, Palo Alto and Stanford University, hospitable to and supportive of an innovation ecosystem?
  • - How does the University collaborate with entrepreneurs and investors to support creativity, thought leadership, and innovation?
  • - What role does "place" and the real estate environment play in hosting the ecosystem?
