The State of Technology Luncheon brings together nearly 1,000 leaders from business, research, education and government to gain perspectives from world-renowned technology visionaries and to celebrate the contributions of our state's vibrant innovation community. Join 2016 luncheon co-chairs Tom Alberg, Managing Director, Madrona Venture Group and Brad Smith, President and Chief Legal Officer, Microsoft, as we mark the Technology Alliance's 20th anniversary with a keynote presentation featuring Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella. Don't miss this special opportunity to hear from one of our own globally-respected technology leaders. 

After joining Microsoft from Sun Microsystems in 1992, Nadella quickly became known as a leader capable of transforming some of the company's biggest product offerings. During his tenure, Nadella held a variety of leadership roles in Microsoft's enterprise and consumer businesses, driving double-digit growth of its Cloud and Enterprise group and guiding the development of one of the largest cloud infrastructures in the world to support flagship products such as Office and Xbox. In February 2014, Nadella became Microsoft's third CEO, bringing a deep commitment to innovation and collaboration and an unwavering enthusiasm for Microsoft's role in empowering people to make the world a better place.
