The Pittsburgh Creative Industries Study: Let Your Voice Be Heard and Support the Future of Creativity in the Region

Calling all businesses, artists, innovators, entrepreneurs, art organizations, and non-profits!

The Pittsburgh Technology Council and Carnegie Mellon University are working with Echo Strategies and the University of Toronto Rotman School of Management to conduct an in-depth study of Pittsburgh’s creative industries. The study has been underway since May, and we are now engaging the community in the various creative sectors to provide insight into our region’s innovation assets.

If you or your company is working in any industry that integrates with the arts, design, creativity, new product development, consulting, R&D, or somewhere in the innovation space, we need you to be part of this study, and help us achieve our goal of mapping out the landscape of this nationally-emerging sector.

All survey entrants will be invited to attend the 2014 Pittsburgh Creative Industry Summit on February 19 at Carnegie Mellon University, and will be eligible to win cool prizes, including several iPad Minis!
