FOR LEADERS

In order to take the next steps, we have to have vision - and the people willing the take the calculated risk to make these visions reality. And yes, leaders step up to challenges, but they also inspire and energize people to follow, while empowering the community to take the reigns and move forward. Simply put: learn about change agents, and then become one yourself.



FOR CONNECTORS

This is a great town to not only “bump and mingle” - as Brookings’ Bruce Katz put it - but it’s a great place to bump and gel. For the collaboratives, the communicators, and the visionaries, come to these events to connect to make something happen.



FOR MAKERS

Steel mills dominated our landscape for over a century. So much so that we were famously referred to by James Parton as “Hell with the lid off.” The steel industry is no longer what it was, but Pittsburgh is making things again - and these products are playing vital roles in an increasingly competitive marketplace. These events are geared for the tinkerers and builders that aren’t afraid to invest the sweat equity in order to make their dreams a reality.



FOR PIONEERS

Move forward. Take on the unknown. These events are custom-built for those of us who are ready to take on the next challenge.



FOR THINKERS

Pittsburgh has brain power. With world-class research universities, think thanks, and learning initiatives, the city is a leader of America’s knowledge economy. It’s time to export Fthought-leadership, and to share our blueprint with the world. Learn more about the people envisioning a 21st century post-industrial resurgence.
