The Asian Lunar New Year has just ushered in the Year of the Rat, Year 4706. Marking the beginning of the lunar calendar cycle, the Year of the Rat portends a time of rebirths and new beginnings. What better way is it then to celebrate by connecting with old friends and forging new friendships. GuanXi, the Chinese words for "connection", captures the Asian concept of the handshake and the relationship as the foundation of business success. And in the spirit of GuanXi, CSPA, SABA and VSVN, have arranged an exciting networking event within the halls of the venerable Computer History Museum.
Steve Westly, former California State Controller, Founder and CEO of the clean technology VC firm, the Westly Group, and a member of the board of Tesla Motors, is our esteemed keynote speaker for the evening. Appropriately, the theme of this year's event is "Global Impact, Global Responsibility". This event brings together professionals in technology, business, venture capital and law, and highlights the underpinnings of business in GuanXi. The evening will include a spirited performance, lots of food & drinks, as well as full access to the cool displays and exhibits of the Computer History Museum.
Come and join us for a great evening of networking and camaraderie, and share in a raucous celebration for a prosperous 2008
