Pittsburgh is best known for the steel forged on the banks of its three rivers. Bridges and a blue-collar work ethic have come to define our region.
Although present day Pittsburgh is devoid of iron furnaces and steels mills, our reputation for hard work remains. We’ve replaced the relics of the industrial revolution with corporate headquarters, co-working spaces, art galleries and idea labs.
We are in the midst of a city wide renaissance. Thanks to the efforts of our city’s incredible network of inventors, entrepreneurs, artists and humanitarians, the innovation taking place in our backyard are once again laying the foundation for the future of our city and country.
In the Spring of 2014 on April 26th, TEDxGrandviewAve will celebrate the people of Pittsburgh who dare to create, while inspiring others to take action and follow their lead.
