Consul General of Canada in San Francisco
” Canada, Silicon Valley & The Bay Area: What’s Next For Canada? “
January 29th, 2019
Silicon Valley & the Bay Area has long been the global epicentre for innovation and the disruptive forces reshaping our world in ways we are just beginning to be understand. Its firms, funders, trendsetters and talent have outsized impacts on Canada. Join Rana Sarkar, Canada’s Consul General to San Francisco & Silicon Valley on January 29th, as he discusses what’s next for 2019, potential surprises and lessons learned and most critically, how Canadians should get ready to navigate what’s ahead.
Sarkar will also be drawing on insights from a report on Canada by the Bay Area Council Economic Institute and from his experience as our chief diplomat shaping Canada’s economic, political and cultural ties with Northern California/Silicon Valley at this unique moment.
Rana will be joined in conversation by Alison Loat (Managing Director, Focusing Capital on the Long Term).
