TiE Talk: “Two Pearls of Wisdom” from One of the Fathers of the Internet — Dr. Vint Cerf

Modeled after TED Talks, TiE 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 and 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.
