In conjunction with Foresight’s 25th Anniversary conference, we will be holding a no-host reception at our official hotel, the Crowne Plaza Cabana in Palo Alto.  Come mingle, chat with Foresight staff, leadership and speakers, catch up with your fellow Foresighters! There is no cost to attend, though drinks are your own option.  Join us in the lounge across from the main restaurant, or outside on the patio.


III. Senior Associates Reunion Banquet – 7pm, Saturday June 25th

Our 25th Anniversary Celebration and Senior Associates Reunion Banquet will be held on Saturday evening at the Crowne Plaza Cabana Hotel’s Cyprus Room in Palo Alto. This is a special opportunity for past and present Senior Associates to enjoy meeting speakers, relax with friends, explore career options, and celebrate renewed energy, direction and developments in Foresight’s vision of nanotechnology.

Amidst tasty cuisine, great company and a beautiful sunset over the courtyard, President Christine Peterson and new Director of Development Desiree Dudley will be presenting our renewed vision for the future, program highlights and more on how you can be a part of “The Future of Foresight.”

This exclusive event is reserved for those who have donated within the last year – or can donate today – at a $250 level or above. Cost of the banquet is $75.

As a special treat for Senior Associates, we’ve invited the Thiel Foundation’s 20Under20 Fellows to join us for the banquet.


IV. Thiel Foundation’s 20Under20 to attend [email protected]Google

Foresight is proud to welcome The Thiel Foundation’s first group of 20Under20 Fellows to our 25th Anniversary Conference and celebratory Banquet.

“The Fellows are a tremendous group of young people who are going to advance the frontiers of knowledge, shake up staid industries, and change the world,” said [Peter] Thiel. “Tomorrow will not take care of itself. In order to solve vexing problems and increase the quality of life for people everywhere, the world’s economy needs continuous scientific and technical innovation from outstanding creative minds.”

As the first members of the 20 Under 20 Thiel Fellowship, the Fellows will pursue innovative scientific and technical projects, learn entrepreneurship, and begin to build the technology companies of tomorrow. During their two-year tenure, each Fellow will receive $100,000 from the Thiel Foundation as well as mentorship from the Foundation’s network of tech entrepreneurs and innovators. The project areas for this class of fellows include biotech, career development, economics and finance, education, energy, information technology, mobility, robotics, and space.

“The Fellows’ creativity, intelligence, and leadership were captivating,” said James O’Neill, the head of the Thiel Foundation. “They’re challenging the authority of the present and the familiar…. We’re excited to be working with them, and we hope they will help young people everywhere realize that you don’t need credentials to launch a company that disrupts the status quo.”

We are honored that The Thiel Foundation has chosen our conference to help kick off the Fellows’ experience. Come help us expand on the promise in emerging nanotech with the next generation of great innovators and entrepreneurs!
