This year, we are pleased to announced Michael T. Moe as this year’s Keynote Speaker during our opening session!
"EdTech and the Knowledge Economy… Reigniting the American Dream"
In addition to leading one of the Silicon Valley’s most well-known investment firms (GSV Capital), Michael also co-founded the ASU GSV Summit. Cohosted with the Arizona State University, the summit brings together more than 4,000 leaders from across the world’s learning and talent spectrum and is one of the nation’s top gatherings of educators, entrepreneurs and investors.
Having recently authored “The Global Silicon Valley,” which describes the hottest start-up scenes from around the globe, Mr. Moe has strong ties to the Pittsburgh region and has been a critical advocate for Pittsburgh based start-ups. He speaks on a broad range of topics including the future of work, and the impact of artificial intelligence on human resources and the implications for the nation’s learning ecosystem.
