As Palestine continues to strive for full statehood, there are signs of growth in economic development throughout the region; change makers in the private sector, entrepreneurs, innovators and philanthropists are playing a major role in this unparalleled evolution. Prominent leaders of these sectors will be in Silicon Valley to share their vision, experiences, and perspectives for the future. As we know, continued economic progress is a key component and must be fostered but sustainable development and help to bring an end to the conflict in Palestine can only be realized in concert with advancement on all other political fronts. The speakers have all led mutual efforts for progressive change and witnessed the great lengths the Palestinian people have been through to survive in a difficult environment. Despite all, they and the people of Palestine, offer hope to the human spirit by never giving up on the possibility of progress for its future.
