What to expect
Ignite Northside propels next-stage development for businesses, projects, and their leaders through cost-free training, resources, and connections. Sessions include monthly group training, one on one consulting, and peer networking events.
Project and business owners benefit through weekly one on one Strategy Meetings, meeting your specific needs, and implemented through the NSR Social Entrepreneur Training Curriculum. Topics focus on business or project growth including validating your product or service with clients, building strategic partnerships, securing funding, and organizational development.
Leadership Development Workshops are held monthly to capitalize on your strengths and overcome challenges created by your weaknesses. Strengthening networks is another core strategy of Ignite Northside.
Strategic connections will be made between peers and mentors at Quarterly Networking Events, and to local resources and professional services in the Northside and broader Pittsburgh region throughout the program.
Businesses & projects are showcased through a Demonstration and Skill Swap Event. The goal of these public events are to provide customer/client feedback, connect diverse entrepreneurs served throughout the Ignite Northside Resource Hubs, and to amplify the identity of the Northside entrepreneurial community throughout the Pittsburgh region.
