Students from Carnegie Mellon Universitys graduate business school know the importance of Pittsburghs evolution from traditional industry to a technology-driven economy.
And they know that, for such an evolution to occur, more high-tech companies and talent will have to relocate here.
Thats why the students are playing host to a rather aggressive national technology conference, which theyre calling Tomorrows Technology Today (T3). Their goal: to entice more national dot-com companies and young entrepreneurial professionals to relocate to Pittsburgh.
The economy is moving in the technology direction, says Matt Downing, one of the conferences organizers. People must know the language to move in that direction. This can help them get started or expand.
The conference will be held April 7-8 at various locations on the CMU campus. For information on the T3 conference, visit www.RealPittsburgh.com.
