ASCENDER’s Network + Grow: Hardware & Software

August 10, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Ascender Network & Grow banner for August 10, 2022

Bringing together Pittsburgh entrepreneurs, startup founders, and small business owners for networking, lightning talks, and free coworking.

About this event
In celebration of Ascender’s 10th Anniversary, we’re hosting ten Network + Grow events— from August 2022 through May 2023—celebrating an entrepreneurial community where everyone can build, belong, collaborate, and thrive.


So much has changed over the past few years, and staying on top of what matters to you and your business is challenging. Setting up Google Alerts, scouring the newspaper’s business section, or saving that Twitter thread only gets you so far.

What actually helps is connecting with folks who understand your industry’s jargon, are on (or have already been down) a similar path as you, and are eager to share notes, tips, and introductions.

During our Network + Grow event, you’ll get to network with other entrepreneurs interested in what you care about, grab breakfast, and enjoy a free pass to work at our collaborative coworking space in East Liberty for the rest of the day.

In August, we’re bringing entrepreneurs together around the theme of Hardware & Software.

Whether you’re Team Hardware or Team Software, don’t pass on this chance to meet other startup founders, small business owners, innovators, and experts.

Networking // Free Coworking

// Breakfast will be available at 8:30 AM.
// Program will start at 8:45 AM followed by a free Community Coworking Day.
