On March 30-31st, 2020, students from Stanford and Berkeley will host the second edition of Brazil at Silicon Valley, a conference held at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View that aims to improve Brazil’s competitiveness through innovation and technology. Our audience, which represents a significant portion of Brazil’s GDP, consists of the 750 most influential Brazilian executives, entrepreneurs, experts, and policy-makers.
The event hosts panels in which Brazilian decision-makers interview world leaders and experts about topics that are relevant to Brazil’s growth. In our first edition, we had Carlos Brito (CEO of AbInbev) interviewing Vinod Khosla, David Velez (CEO and Founder of NuBank) interviewing Doug Leone, Julio Vasconcellos (Co-founder of Canary) interviewing Marcelo Claure, and Jorge Paulo Lemann (Co-founder of 3G Capital) interviewing Scott Cook.
For this year's conference, we hope to discuss three key topics: Innovation Ecosystems, Disrupted Industries, and Social Impact.
