Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who recently took a medical leave of absence from his company, Google chief executive Eric Schmidt, and Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg will be among the attendees of President Obama's event with business leaders in San Francisco Thursday evening, a source familiar with the event tells ABC News.
Jobs has been the subject of tabloid rumors and rampant speculation about his health since announcing last month that was taking a medical leave for undisclosed reasons.
Schmidt on Tuesday told a conference he was "very, very proud" of Google executive Wael Ghonim, who helped organize the Egypt protests that resulted in President Mubarak leaving office.
"The president and the business leaders will discuss our shared goal of promoting American innovation, and discuss his commitment to new investments in research and development, education and clean energy," a White House official said.
GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt, whom last month President Obama named as chairman of the new White House Council on Jobs and Competititveness, also will be there, a source said.
