This is a very exciting time in our city. Pittsburgh is being featured left and right in national articles to showcase recent growth and projects. This city deserves to be proud of where we’ve come from and confident in what we’re developing. We are changing the way people view this once industrious steel capital of the world. We are building our city’s future.
Our region is filled with powerful voices that need to be heard. Hundreds of you want to hear these voices and discover new ideas. That has led us to a milestone – we have far exceeded the capacity of our TEDx audience limit. Pittsburgh is craving knowledge of the brilliant innovations around us. With this insight and with innovation in mind, TEDxGrandviewAve is taking it to the next level.
On February 23rd, 2013 we’re going citywide. In addition to viewing 9 incredible innovators at TEDxGrandviewAve, we will be connecting neighborhoods through Webcast Parties. This is your opportunity to gather with friends, family, coworkers and fellow Pittsburghers to share a day of exploration and celebration of innovation.
While we have gone over the allowed limit for audience members, we are still accepting ticket invite requests. We love hearing your stories and desire for learning new ideas. Invites for the main event will be sent in January and we’ll be directing those who do not get tickets to the webcast parties. Locations of these parties will be announced very soon. If you have an idea for one, are interested in sponsoring or organizing one of your own, let’s talk!
The people of Pittsburgh have a great way of working together to get things done. TEDxGrandviewAve is a prime example of this. There is a wealth of open minds and passionate people all around us. As area legend Andrew Carnegie once said, “Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision…it is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.”
Join our vision by spreading the news of TEDxGrandviewAve and help us prove Pittsburgh is on The Edge of Innovation.
