Impact Mentors: a chat with Mark Anthony Thomas
On this episode we’ll be speaking with Mark Anthony Thomas, president of the Pittsburgh Regional Alliance about the current plight of Pittsburgh’s minority startup ecosystem. With talent retention being a priority to sustaining Pittsburgh as an ideal city for innovation, attracting big tech firms such as Honeywell, Facebook and Duolingo with Pittsburgh's knowledge hubs is key. We discuss the future of sourcing alternative investment solutions and the need for more Angel and micro-investment opportunities to spur more sustainable startup support for long-term lasting viable growth. Enjoy the episode.
