Former Cisco CEO to discuss AI and the future with Morrisville Councilman Steve Rao

With artificial intelligence continuing to dominate conversations in our region, state and nation, I wanted to host an AI summit, gathering local government and state leaders, startups and investors for a conversation on AI and what it means for our economy, the future of work and our nation.

I am proud to be working with Tie Carolinas, NC Tech, RIOT, IT Serve and NC Association of Indian Americans to make this historic event happen!

Who better to turn to for advice than one of godfathers of the internet revolution, my family friend and West Virginia brother, John Chambers, former CEO of Cisco Systems.

Chambers is now a venture investor at JC2 Ventures and advisor to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on digital and startup strategy. He is a winner of the Padma Shri Award, one of the highest civilian awards given by the Republic of India.

On May 15 at 4 p.m., I will be moderating a virtual fireside chat with John on AI and our future.

During this hybrid event, we will also hear from NC Secretary of Technology Jim Weaver; Allen Thomas, SBA Southeast Director; and NC Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall.

Thomas will be there to talk about loan and capital opportunities for small business and startups.

Please register for this event!

A virtual link will be sent to registrants who can’t make the event in person.
This event will also be livestreamed on Facebook and wptf.com, or listen live on Radio NVRA (99.9FMHD4) and WPTF Radio (680 AM and 98.5 FM).
