Applications are closed for the Spring.

Fee: $375, $300 for members of the Center

MyPath is a four-month, immersive pathway program for women entrepreneurs with product-focused businesses in the creative industries. This cutting-edge program is designed to prepare you to commercialize a product, secure financing, and/or participate in an accelerator. This program utilizes a sequential mentoring model where participants work with one mentor at a time, for four to six weeks, on specific goals and needs to prepare for growth. This innovative approach provides women entrepreneurs with fast-tracked mentoring and business development support at an early growth stage.


"During the My Path program I achieved my goal of bringing an artisan chocolate bar to market. I met a lot of great mentors and entrepreneurs in various fields. The program definitely helped me network within the Pittsburgh food entrepreneur world. I look forward to continuing the process with the relationships that I have made."

"The connections and support that I received through MyPath enabled my business to hit the ground running. Having launched my business in another city, MyPath was a critical tool to put me in touch with a number of local mentors. Additionally, it provided valuable workshops, meaningful support and access to incredible resources."

If you are interested in participating in MyPath and have questions, please contact Nazli Saka at or 412-365-1384 to set up an appointment.
