Speakers

PIE is currently looking for speakers to join us this Fall and contribute to our speaker series.

The PIE Speaker series brings in local companies, executives, non-profits and entrepreneurs to talk about their experience in starting and scaling a business or about their particular area of expertise. Each week has a different topic that benefit students from a wide range of interests. Past topics have included IP law and Tech Transfer, raising money for nonprofits, how to raise venture capital, and lessons on bootstrapping a start-up.

If you are a professional looking to inspire our PIE students, we encourage you to contact us here. We would love to get in touch with you and fit you into our upcoming speaker series.
