The branding seminar hosted by entrepreneur Karen Civil offers entrepreneurs, music artist, and those looking for insight on branding, a unique opportunity to share a once-in-a-lifetime moment with a person who has already gained knowledge on how branding works.

Based around the concept #CarpePittsburgh derived from the well known term Carpe Diem, “Seize Pittsburgh” introduces the city to a new way of thinking. With the recent boom of Pittsburgh based entrepreneurs and start-ups making waves amongst the influential 18-35 demographic, #CarpePittsburgh is here to prove that there are still viable opportunities in Pittsburgh and the city is basically what you make it.
“Pittsburgh use to be a city that people couldn’t wait to leave, but now I think that’s changing,” says Westside Story Co-Owner Natasha Slade. ” I myself left but I’m back and I now can see the valuable opportunities and wealth Pittsburgh has compared to other cities. We’re just trying to make it more visible and obtainable through information, events and entertainment.”
