“Latinos Leading in Technology and creating change in the United States –
It’s Time! (Es Tiempo)”
Es Tiempo, LLC, is proud to announce the 6th Annual Silicon Valley Latino Leadership Summit (SVLLS). The Summit will offer powerful and insightful sessions provided by nationally recognized speakers. This year’s theme is: Latinos Leading in Technology – It’s Time! (Es Tiempo) and the goal is to inspire rising professionals through interactive discussions with top industry leaders in technology.
SVLLS brings together over 250 leaders in business, government, education, and diverse industries throughout the United States, including MBA students and selected high school students, for a one-day conference at the Stanford Faculty Club at Stanford University.
SVLLS is once again honored to present the 3rd Annual Young Latina Project (YLP). Through a competitive application process, a group of deserving students will receive Summit Scholarships. These students not only have an opportunity to meet top business leaders, but are also invited to participate in the Ivy League Project.
The 2015 Silicon Valley Leadership Summit has something for everyone, whether you are new in your profession, a seasoned entrepreneur, or an executive. As always, we allow various networking opportunities throughout the day. This is your chance to make those contacts you have been waiting for. SVLLS is a “win-win” opportunity that should not be missed. We thank you for your support.
