Silicon Slopes announced today that Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg will headline the annual Silicon Slopes Tech Summit. Held in Salt Lake City on January 30-31, 2020, the Summit brings together the brightest minds in tech and business.
“Mark is clearly recognized as one of the great entrepreneurs of our generation and we are thrilled to have his insights shared from our stage,” said Clint Betts, executive director of Silicon Slopes. “We look forward to hearing from Mark, especially at a time when Utah’s tech scene is booming and all eyes are on the growth and success we are experiencing.”
Zuckerberg is the founder, chairman, and CEO of Facebook, which he founded in 2004. He is also the co-founder and co-CEO of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, which is leveraging technology to help solve some of the world’s toughest challenges – from eradicating disease, to improving education, to reforming the criminal justice system. Mark studied computer science at Harvard University before moving to Palo Alto, California in 2004.
In addition to Zuckerberg, featured speakers at the 2020 Summit include: Head of NASA Jim Bridenstine, AOL founder and Revolution CEO Steve Case, Peek CEO Ruzwana Bashir, iHeartMedia CMO Gayle Troberman, DocuSign CTO Kirsten Wolberg, JetBlue Airways founder David Neeleman, and others.
The Summit also plays host to the annual Startup Pitch Competition, which awards the winner $250,000, and, new in 2020, Slopes Arcade, a world-class esports tournament.
