Event description

Description

Please join us for the launch of Hello Tomorrow's new hub in Silicon Valley! Hello Tomorrow is a global network of entrepreneurs, investors, academics, and researchers supporting innovation in deep technologies - those based on scientific discovery and engineering expertise.

We will meet at the legendary innovation engine, Xerox's PARC (Palo Alto Research Center) which has spawned some of the most important technologies we use today. Hearing from PARC's experts as well as others from NASA's CASIS, China's Pony.ai, the IndieBio accelerator, Genentech, Lux Capital, InnovationLab, and more, we will discuss the topics that everyone pursuing these technologies shares, such as:

  • funding long-term technology development
  • dealing with uncertain/changing regulatory frameworks
  • technology disrupting established industries and business models
  • hiring talent that understands both science and business
  • finding a site to grow a company that may have unusual equipment and space needs
  • understanding a complex global market landscape

Participants and speakers will span scales from quantum computing, to neural interfaces, to planetary hyperloops, but three main tracks will go deep into:

  • Mobility - a century of transportation innovation in one decade. In a century, we went from horseless carriages to electric vehicles, from sailing ships to nuclear subs, from first flight to spaceflight. Now electrification, autonomy, and new business models promise to redefine the transportation landscape as much in 10 years as we did in the last 100.Will these technologies change cities, commerce, and culture again at a similar pace?
  • Life science - evolving models for engineering life. Gene drives, CRISPR, synthetic biology... Not only are these new technologies expanding the toolkit for engineering life, they are spawning new models for conducting and commercializing research. What roles will traditional R&D, venture funding, crowdsourcing, hackathons and more play in the future? How will these new models accelerate discovery, change IP, and open markets?
  • Space - outer space in everyone’s reach. Space has always been the domain of government-level activitiesuntil just now. Hordes of startups, students, and other actors are rushing into orbit. In the deeptech context, satellites and the space station are key to the future of mobility and biology. But the shifts in funding, regulation, and technology accessibility that all three face are similar. How can they help each other?

To wrap up the day, we will nosh and network surrounded by demonstrations of artificial creativity - AI entering music, visual arts, and even comedy, as we pit human expression against the machine in a preview of the world to come.
