Speaker(s): Marty Bates, EVP & Chief Operating Officer, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra; Farnam Jahanian, President, Carnegie Mellon University and Ex-Officio Board Member, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra; Meredith Meyer Grelli, Assistant Professor & Entrepreneur in Residence, Tepper School of Business, Carnegie Mellon University; Jorgen Pedersen, COO, Sarcos Technology & Robotics Corporation

What can the orchestra field learn from how start-ups create a culture of innovation? Start-ups in particular live in a world of constant development, of innovation and new ideas, of failing fast and often, and of potential big wins and sometimes big losses. Farnam Jahanian, President of Carnegie Mellon University, moderates a panel of local Pittsburgh business and tech leaders about how they got their start, where they are now, what lessons they’ve learned, and where they see their industries evolving into the future. Learn about their core values and challenges, what drives them, and how they have overcome and grown.
