White House coming to Silicon Valley

The Administration will be holding a series of White House Initiative Economic Summits, intended to raise awareness of the Administration’s efforts to incentivize entrepreneurs and small businesses to drive economic growth.

The first event in the series will take place on Fri Jan 7, and is oriented towards the Asian American and Pacific Islander community. It's free and open to the public, but is already sold out. Here's the evite. Looks like it'll focus on Healthcare IT and Clean Tech.

This isn't in the evite, but I found it elsewhere - Jan 7 event will include: US Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke. US Representative Mike Honda, chair, Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus. Aneesh Chopra, chief technology officer, Executive Office of the President. Don Graves, deputy assistant secretary, Treasury Department. Ginger Lew, senior counselor, White House National Economic Council. Todd Park, chief technology officer, Department of Health and Human Services. Elizabeth Echols, regional administrator, Small Business Administration. Ronnie Chatterji, senior advisor, White House Council of Economic Advisors. Daphne Kwok, chair, President’s Advisory Commission on AAPIs. Kiran Ahuja, director, White House Initiative on AAPIs.

Here's the official "invite" from Secretary Locke:
