Ask Me About… a Homewood organization helping people overcome employment barriers

"With skilled workers highly sought after these days, the Trade Institute of Pittsburgh sees a moment for students whose lives it wants to help change through education and employment opportunities.

That will be evident when the Homewood nonprofit hosts an open house April 20 at 5 p.m. in its 7800 Susquehanna Street headquarters."

Artists, budding entrepreneurs gain a guide at new ErieMade Business Academy at ECAT building

"Financial support for the program is coming from the Pittsburgh-based nonprofit Bridgeway Capital. It opened an Erie office in 2012 and since then has loaned $26 million for small-business ventures in Erie County and northwestern Pennsylvania that cannot access mainstream sources of finance.

Bridgeway operates its Creative Business Accelerator to help artists, entrepreneurs and other creators to grow their businesses. The accelerator is providing program support to the ErieMade Business Academy."

Women have long held key roles in Erie, but there’s getting to be a lot more of them

"Cathryn Easterling, director of Bridgeway Capital’s Erie office, took on her role as the director just as COVID emerged. She attributes female success to the ability to adapt and thrive.

“It was March 30, 2020, and I started my job as director with three kids learning from home and a baby,” she said with a laugh. “Women have a tendency to break silos and engage corporate staff. We manage remote spaces, business transitions and parenting.”"

Local tech startup Sustainible partners with Bridgeway Capital and Kiva Pittsburgh to showcase its business assessment tech

"Sustainible, a local tech-focused startup that offers a business model assessment tool to entrepreneurs and their startups, announced it entered into a partnership with Bridgeway Capital and microcredit funding platform Kiva Pittsburgh that will supply eligible businesses with Sustainible's tech-driven evaluation tools."
