Pittsburgh’s success in harnessing local educational institutions to attract tech employers is now a case study for transforming a city’s economy.  When referring to Uber’s decision to locate its Advanced Technologies Center and develop self-driving cars in Pittsburgh, Mayor Peduto said, “You can either put up red tape or roll out the red carpet. If you want to be a 21st-century laboratory for technology, you put out the carpet." Now Uber has graciously agreed to roll out the red carpet for the HBSAP.  Details of this exclusive HBSAP event forthcoming.
