U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker is scheduled to make her first trip to Silicon Valley Monday to talk about economic innovation at a tech startup center in Sunnyvale, commerce officials said.

Pritzker became secretary on June 26 after working in real estate, hospitality, senior living and financial services, according to the Department of Commerce.

She will discuss the Obama Administration's support of the "innovation economy" at 12:15 p.m. today at the Plug and Play Tech center, a facility for startups and investors in Sunnyvale.
