Start Smart Legal seminars are designed to provide Pitt and CMU faculty, students and staff with primers on the myriad legal issues facing entrepreneurs. The series is presented by the Big Idea Center, the Pitt School of Law, and Carnegie Mellon University’s Project Olympus incubator, with the help of law firm K&L Gates.

The seminars are free and open to the public.  The seminars this fall are all virtual and will use Zoom.
