Ignite Northside is designed to engage emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in Northside neighborhoods, and aims to help launch and grow innovative community projects and local businesses, and develop action plans and a supportive network to succeed.

If you are thinking of launching or expanding a business or community project, Ignite Northside is there to help. Several workshops will be offered to help you develop action skills, and build the confidence, plans, and network of resources necessary to succeed.

The workshops offer impactful, action-focused experiences targeting effective partnerships, getting organized, “pitch” development and more. Ignite Northside is invested in the long-term success of its entrepreneurs and community leaders, providing ongoing support for workshop participants through regular open office hours. Ignite Northside meets you where you are; tailoring support to your stage of concept, personal definition of success, and bringing the experience to a neighborhood near you.

Ignite Northside has scheduled the next two workshops on the Northside:

Saturday, April 23        Arnold’s Tea House                502 East Ohio Street

Saturday, May 7           The Pittsburgh Project            2801 North Charles Street
