On May 13, 2009 in Palo Alto at Hewlett Packard Auditorium SDForum held the third annual “Tech Titans of Tomorrow: Teens Plugged In”.

Corporate executives, not-for-profits, venture capitalists and teenage entrepreneurs discussed the power of a new generation in technology. Teens use Facebook, Twitter, email, IM, MySpace and cell phones in new and disruptive ways.

First there was a fireside chat with Catherine Cook of MyYearbook and Sergio Monsalve of Norwest Venture Partners.

Josh Lowensohn of CNET’s Webware moderated panel of college students including Stanford’s Nathan Evans and Ricky Yean, Jeff Widman of Western Washington University, and Grace Wai-Sze Wu of Santa Clara University. They discussed how they use technology and their personal interest in technology, entrepreneurship.

Allison Leopold Tilley of Pillsbury Winthrop moderated the second panel on “Understanding the Teen Market” with Jennifer Carole of Listen2Youth, Adam Jackson and Marjana Spasojevic of Nokia.

Tim Draper of Draper Fisher Jurvetson gave a keynote that was fearless, funny and unflappable. He told the young audience that the bad news could be good news if they could find the opportunities that others could not.

Jeff Siebert and Kimber Lockhardt of Increo Solutions talked about their ‘Profile in Teen Entrepreneurship’ and how they changed their strategies in the face of competition.

Allison Leopold Tilley of Pillsbury Winthrop moderated the third panel with high school students Anika Ayar, Victoria Leon, Max Marmer, Jack Montgomery, Adan Perez, and Tyler Stout. They discussed how they use technology and their personal interest in technology, entrepreneurship.

Laurie Lumenti Garty of Silicon Valley Bank moderated the third panel on “Teen Outreach: What the Tech Companies have to Offer” with Rich Friedrich of Hewlett-Packard, Dana Nguyen of Google, Kenny Spade of Microsoft, and Jocelyn Zona of IBM.

Arjun Mehta and Karl Mehta of Playspan were featured in this year’s ‘Profile in Teen Entrepreneurship’.
