The list of high-tech executives invited to President Obama's intimate dinner in San Francisco on Thursday night includes some of Silicon Valley's biggest names.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said the invitees include executives whose companies have made a significant contribution to the U.S. economy in the past decades. The president has made innovation, particularly in the technology sector, a top priority for his next two years in office, and he planned to use his quick visit to San Francisco and Portland to highlight the effort.

America's tech industry, Carney said, “is a remarkable demonstration of the American capacity for creativity and innovation, leadership, and a model, really, for that kind of economic activity that we want to see in other cutting-edge industries in the United States where jobs can be created in America and kept in America. And that's what he wants to talk about.”

• John Doerr, Partner, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers
