We support the entrepreneurial artists, designers, makers, and craftspeople building businesses that impact the regional economy in meaningful ways
In 2016, Bridgeway launched the Creative Businesses Accelerator (CBA)* to channel its 30 years of business building and community development capability into the creative economy. The CBA empowers creative businesses to contribute more actively to equitable economic growth. Strong and successful creative businesses emerge as effective allies in Bridgeway’s efforts to make western Pennsylvania a thriving region for all. They create jobs, reactivate post-industrial spaces, and bring business activity to disinvested communities in need of new and innovative economic activity.
