Finding Your Niche: Building a Successful Company in Pittsburgh
The Pittsburgh Venture Capital Association's Emerging Leadership Board is proud to present a special evening program featuring a conversation with Luke Skurman, Founder CEO of Niche.com and a recognized thought leader of Pittsburgh's innovation ecosystem.
A San Francisco native, Luke came to Pittsburgh 15 years ago to pursue his bachelors and masters degrees from Carnegie Mellon, and never left. Today, Luke wears multiple professional and civic hats, all of which reflect a deep commitment to bolstering innovation and entrepreneurship in Pittsburgh.
We encourage you to join us at Ascender on April 12th, to hear Luke's compelling presentation detailing his entrepreneurial journey as the CEO of an early stage company in Pittsburgh. In talking about his Pittsburgh experience, Luke will offer candid insights concerning the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats within the local innovation ecosystem.
Within this context, Luke will touch on his role on Carnegie Mellon University's Board of Trustees, and the vision behind Ascender and the Thrival Innovation and Music Festival (which he helped co-found).
Please note: You must be under 40 to attend this event.
