Enlightening Conversations

Cornell Tech caps off each week with a lively edition of Conversations in the Studio. Conversations are your chance to pick the brains of prominent thought-leaders from around the world. The guests include entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, social entrepreneurs, engineers, designers, artists, VCs, lawyers, writers, ethicists, and other leaders who are making a difference through their entrepreneurial efforts. Conversations take place in the Cornell Tech Studio and are moderated by a group of students that come prepared with questions and discussion topics. This is not a lecture: it’s a weekly wake-up call.
