TiE Pittsburgh is pleased to introduce our exciting new educational series: TiE Talks. Modeled after TED Talks, these talks will feature eminent speakers who are thought leaders, serial entrepreneurs, investors, and philanthropists in our community. The intent of a TiE Talk is to have the speaker share "Two Pearls of Wisdom" — one professional, and one personal — having reflected on their own life experiences, in under 20 minutes. Unlike, TED Talks, the audience will have the unique opportunity to ask questions. We expect the Q&A to also be a significant component of the event.

All the talks will be recorded in high definition and the video footage will be made publicly available on the web. We expect that these forums will provide both the speaker and the audience to explore areas that largely remain unspoken and get lost through history. Our hope is that TiE Talks will provide a platform to share the intimate trials and tribulations gained from decades of experience with our budding entrepreneurial community, and boost the impact of TiE Pittsburgh — not just locally but world-wide.

TiE Talks will be held once every quarter and will also serve as a great networking opportunity for entrepreneurs, thought leaders, charter members, etc. We will also showcase a couple of our newest member startup companies.
