SAN FRANCISCO, California — In light of their successful conference last year, the Science & Technology Advisory Council (STAC) – Silicon Valley, the Philippine Consulate and the Philippine Trade & Investment Center in Silicon Valley will hold the second Latitude Longitude Business Conference at the renovated ground floor gallery at the Philippine Center in San Francisco on Friday, June 20.

The conference once again takes place during the Kalayaan 2014 Philippine Independence Day celebration.  The theme of the conference is “Resilience, Moving Forward and Giving Back.”


Several speakers and guest companies will highlight this year’s theme, including an encore by Global Electric Transportation, which will have the Comet available for viewing.  President Obama requested to see the Comet vehicle during his trip to the Philippines last April.

The conference starts with a discussion on the current economic state of the Philippines and implications of the ASEAN economic integration.  Following a performance by students of the Westlake School of Performing Arts, the afternoon session will showcase companies integrating technology to serve communities and to fuel new global business models.


Filipino and Filipino American business leaders and entrepreneurs in the areas of science and technology will be introduced, including Tessie Guillermo, CEO of Zero Divide and Dr. Marc Loinaz, cofounder of Aeluros.

Five Filipino-founded startup companies will be pitching to a group of investors and professionals.

Latitude Longitude conferences are designed to provide a venue and platform to discuss global topics relating to the Philippines and to leverage the expertise of entrepreneurs and advisors for the benefit of businesses here and abroad.  To register for the event, go to: http://www.l2conference.com.
