Being a Clevelander is big part of the success story

CLEVELAND, Ohio–Whether you spend your life in Greater Cleveland, leave for good or–like many–leave and come back, that Clevelandness shapes the way you work and innovate.

The fifth edition of TEDxCLE—an affiliate of the popular series of TED conferences–will unfold Friday afternoon at the Cleveland Museum of Art. It’s offering… Read more »

Health, Not Healthcare

We were humbled to have been included in a small group of folks that were invited to The Sydell and Arnold Miller Pavillion at The Cleveland Clinic (or more specifically, its unbelievable roof terrace – I’m told there is lunchtime yoga up here and I want IN) last week for a state-of-the-Clinic event.  After a few minutes of mingling, hors d’oeuvres eating & beverage enjoying, we gathered to hear from… Read more »

TechCentral

Then this year for TEDxCLE 2012: The Maker Class, we partnered with Cleveland Public Library (CPL) on #CLEBookHunt.
