Join us for an exciting event as we host a fireside chat with Giovanni Rodriguez, Founder of The Silicon Valley Story Lab and a Contributor to Forbes.
Topic: A New Narrative
What our city can learn from other regions about reinventing itself around tech and the "creative economy."
Giovanni Rodriguez is founder of The Silicon Valley Story Lab, a soon-to-be-launched venture that provides branding, positioning, and community-driven growth strategies to organizations in markets that matter (where social impact creates economic opportunity). Over the years, he has advised numerous organizations including The White House, the Democratic National Committee, the AARP, Coca-Cola, SAP, Microsoft, Google, VMware, Singularity University (which he helped to launch in 2009), and dozens of technology startups, from market entry to exit. Over the past year, he has begun advising and counseling leaders in different regions -- e.g., Israel, Guadalajara, and Puerto Rico -- on strategies for creating global city brands that leverage their unique assets and market opportunities. He writes about his work and travel for Forbes.com, where he has been a regular contributor since 2011.
