ORIGINS Monthly Meetings

A monthly meeting to provide a space for ORIGINS Network members to gather, share ideas and opportunities, collaborate, and build community among peer creative businesses. ORIGINS is a dynamic, quickly growing initiative that seeks to grow connections among Black entrepreneurs in Western Pennsylvania. Each month, the network is invited to an hour-long virtual meeting to meet new ORIGINS members, learn about resources and opportunities, and discuss topics that are important to the network.
