For the past year, I have been highlighting women artists and entrepreneurs through the Pittsburgh Women MAKE It project, meaning that I have been fortunate to meet a myriad of women doing amazing things throughout our city. While that blog has been on a bit of hiatus, my focus on the dynamic work being done by local women has not rested. Through the course of my travels, I’ve met Nazli Saka, the Community & Student Engagement Manager at Chatham’s Center for Women’s Entrepreneurship. Our first meeting was at 21st Street Coffee and Tea, for a networking event.
Talking to Nazli about the program, she was very excited. She told me that she recently gained a Business Incubation Management Certification through the International Business Innovation Association (InBIA). She is looking forward to sharing her skills with the IncubateHER participants, and will even be leading the Design Thinking session.
Applications are now-but the deadline is quickly approaching. Stop by the website by November 30th for your chance to participate.
And if you are a woman with a business less than 2 years old, don’t fret, there is still an opportunity for you. You can get in touch with Nazli at the Chatham Center for Women’s Entrepreneurship, to ask about the Concept to Launch program.
