Event Description:

For the month of December, our Board Director Calvin Lee has invited our special guest, Mr. Conor Myhrvold (SM'14), to talk about the future of the technology industry in Southeast Asia, Hong Kong's potential role in investing in it, and what it would take to have this Bay Area become like the Bay Area of Silicon Valley by 2047.

   

Speaker: Conor Myhrvold

Conor Myhrvold (SM'14) has been at Uber for 4.5 yrs, joining the Data Science & Analytics team after being part of the inaugural class of Harvard's Computational Science & Engineering degree in SEAS. He currently runs a team of program managers within the Engineering Strategy group of the Office of the CTO. His particular group is responsible for Uber's public facing technology programs including the open source software office, engineering blog, technical research publications, public tech presentations and Uber's global network engineering meetups & events. Since signing, he's seen Uber go from a $3.5B valuation, < 1,000 employees and < 100 cities to $70B+, 20,000 employees and over 600 cities (and hopefully counting!) He's a lifetime member of the Harvard Club of Hong Kong, where this is his 6th visit since August 2017, and is also a lifetime member of the Harvard Club of San Francisco, where he currently lives. Besides traveling to Hong Kong, he is also a volunteer elephant seal tour guide with California State Parks near Santa Cruz.
