* How to construct a tech friendly city│Jennifer Stojkovic (sf.citi, Executive Director, Vegan Women Summit, Founder): When people are asked to name one of the most innovative high-tech cities in the world where startups and especially tech companies thrive the most, San Francisco is always at the high ranks. In this session, we will explore how San Francisco grew to become the world's leading city of tech innovation and the cultural and political ramifications of this transformation. Referring to San Francisco’s experience, Jennifer Stojkovic will share what other global cities like Seoul can learn from it and what are some things to watch out for in constructing a tech-friendly city. Furthermore, she will dive into the issues of techlash to discuss how the City of San Francisco has grappled with the changes in the City by the Bay, what steps (and missteps) the City has taken to grow the tech economy, and what is next for the future of the City, as the looming threat of tech exodus grows in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. #JenniferStojkovic, #sfciti, #SanFrancisco
