CSPA New President Inaugural
An important new chapter in CSPA’s long history will take place on November 10th, as we pass the baton for the organization from the current leadership to the capable hands of CSPA’s newly elected president, Henry Wong. As the founder of Diamond TechVentures LLC and a partner of Garage Technology Ventures, as well as a successful former entrepreneur, Henry brings with him a wealth of experience in technology startup, venture financing, enterprise sales, and all aspects of business operations – a formidable combination, which makes him well-suited to lead CSPA to the next level of innovation and community leadership.
The event will highlight a keynote by Steve Westly, our former California State Controller and currently the Managing Partner of The Westly Group, a clean tech-oriented venture capital firm. Bridging his past as a software and Internet pioneer, and his current passion in clean tech, Steve is expected to highlight evolving trends in the clean tech industry and provide a peek into his investment targets.
Also sharing the stage will be Claudia Fan Munce, Managing Director of IBM Venture Capital Group and Vice President of IBM Corporate Strategy. One of only four Asian women, who made it to the top echelon of the venture capital world, Claudia will provide a balance and counterpoint to Henry and Steve as we celebrate and embark on the next chapter of CSPA.
