30th Anniversary Shinnenkai

Join us in celebrating Keizai Silicon Valley’s 2020 Shinnenkai (New Year’s Reception) on Friday, January 24 at the Palo Alto Hills Golf and Country Club.

This year we are going to have two guests of honor. Mr. Kaname Hayashi, founder and CEO of GROOVE X, Inc., will receive the Keizai Silicon Valley Outstanding Innovation Award. Mr. Hayashi will also give a demonstration of the new companion robot, LOVOT.

We are also presenting Mr. Guy Kawasaki with the Keizai Silicon Valley Distinguished Achievement Award. Aside from giving the keynote speech, Mr. Kawasaki will participate in a fireside chat with Professor Richard Dasher.

We will also be performing our traditional Kagamiwari (sake barrel “breaking”) ceremony. The Consul General of Japan, Mr. Tomochika Uyama, is expected to lead this tradition.
