Coming next is an event that is too interesting to let slip:
The Innovation Practice Institute (IPI) at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law cordially invites you to our second Investing in Innovation event on Thursday, October 20th, 2011, at 4:30 pm, at Google Pittsburgh (Bakery Square).
The IPI’s Investing in Innovation series promotes innovation and economic development by showcasing a new or developing industry in the region, and by introducing local innovators and start-ups within that industry to the regional civic, business, and investment communities. Our next Investing in Innovation event – Above the Cloud: Pittsburgh and the Data Revolution -- celebrates Pittsburgh as an emerging global center for cutting-edge big data and cloud computing research and innovation.
The event is hosted by the Innovation Practice Institute (Pitt Law) and Google Pittsburgh, and will be held on October 20th at Google Pittsburgh’s Bakery Square Office. The evening will commence at 4:30pm with welcoming remarks by Congressman Mike Doyle, and a keynote address by Andrew Moore, the Engineering Director of Google Pittsburgh, followed by a moderated panel discussion featuring regional innovators Pat Scanlon (Post-Gazette), John Dick (Civic Science), Jerome Pesenti (Vivisimo), Kevin Perkey (3RC), and Robert Namestka (Screaming Data).
Refreshments will be served.
This event is made possible through the generosity of Google Pittsburgh, Alpern Rosenthal and Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis, LLP.
It's free, but advance registration is required. Register here.
The first "Investing in Innovation" event was held last May, at Carnegie Mellon: "Astrobotic Technology and Pittsburgh’s Quest for the Moon." There are more on the way.
