Tech Titans: The State of Innovation


Join 1776 and TechNet for an exclusive visit from major leaders in the tech world. The panel will discuss ground-breaking advances in technology, public policy, trends in investment and what the future holds for our lives as consumers and citizens in the digital age.

The further we get into the 21st Century, the more technology and innovation are emerging as key drivers of the global economy. Those factors also are driving debates in Washington about how to preserve America’s global economic leadership.

To address the question, 1776 and TechNet, the bipartisan political network of technology CEOs and senior executives, will host a panel of technology industry leaders on April 15 for a discussion on the future of America’s innovation leadership and how public policy affects entrepreneurs, from startups to Fortune 500 companies. The high-level panel of technology industry leaders will discuss emerging trends in technology, how startups can scale to global success and the implications of ongoing policy debates surrounding tax reform, trade, patents, immigration and cybersecurity.

Confirmed panelists include:

  • Moderator Steve Clemons, Washington editor-at-large for The Atlantic
  • John Chambers, Chairman & CEO, Cisco
  • John Doerr, Partner, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers
  • Kim Polese, Chairman, ClearStreet
  • Ellen Richey, Vice Chairman, Risk and Public Policy, Visa
  • Randall Stephenson, Chairman & CEO, AT&T
