Please join fellow Stanford GSB Asian alumni in celebrating Lunar New Year 2017 on Thursday, Feb 9, 2017 from 5-7 PM at Yucca de Lac restaurant, Stanford Shopping Center.

We are delighted to have Eric Yuan, Founder and CEO of Zoom Video Communications, Inc. as our special guest at this event. Founded in 2011 and headquartered in San Jose, Zoom is the fastest growing cloud-based video conferencing platform. The company recently raised $100 million in its Series D funding on a valuation of $1 billion in its partnership with Sequoia, with additional participation from Emergence Capital, AME Cloud Ventures, and Qualcomm Ventures.

Prior to founding Zoom, Eric was Corporate Vice President of Engineering at Cisco, where he was responsible for Cisco's collaboration software development. As one of the founding engineers and Vice President of Engineering at WebEx, Eric was the heart and soul of the WebEx product from 1997 to 2011. Eric is a named inventor on 11 issued and 20 pending patents in real time collaboration.

Eric is a graduate of the Stanford University Executive Program (SEP) in 2006, and a huge basketball fan.
