More than 800 leaders from around the region will gather for this uplifting tribute to our community and the progress that has been achieved in the past year. Highlighting the event will be a keynote address from West Virginia's own Ray Lane.

From helping Oracle become the second-largest software company in the world to capitalizing on the opportunities presented by the "the 'new' new economy," West Virginia's own Ray Lane has been at the epicenter of growth and innovation throughout his career. Kleiner Perkins was an early investor in Google and Netscape and has a strong focus on sustainable growth, including investments in firms that focus on coal to gas conversion, enhanced gas recovery from fossilized hydrocarbons to concentrating solar energy.

Lane is a graduate of West Virginia University and was recently named to the WVU Board of Governors. We look forward to hearing his perspectives on opportunity and how his Mountain State roots have influenced his success.
