Have Coffee With Building Bridges for Business

Building Bridges for Business debuted its new Coffee With…SM video series – another resource aimed at empowering and educating small business owners in Pittsburgh – on the organization’s YouTube channel. The videos feature successful small business owners and political and community leaders discussing their thoughts on issues that are crowd sourced via the organizations Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn accounts and website.

Dr. Sargeant represents small businesses on regulatory matters, discusses the important role of small business in our economy and how to grow your business in these challenging times.  Watch his and many other videos.

Current videos feature Pittsburgh City Council Members William Peduto and Corey O’Connor, Pennsylvania Candidate for State Representative Ed Gainey, political consultant Bonnie DiCarlo, Pittsburgh Black Business Directory publisher Connie Portis, Andre Weisbrod, president, Star Financial Advisers and entrepreneurs Diane Daniels and Vern Alexander.  Topics discussed by guests in the video series include everything from the job market, small business growth and economic issues to sharing their favorite ride at Kennywood and, appropriately, how they take their coffee.


Based in Pittsburgh, Pa., Building Bridges for Business aims at empowering and educating the region’s small business leaders by providing resources to start, manage, grow and promote their businesses.

Since its inception in November 2010, Building Bridges for Business has hosted four sold out live events, featuring prominent keynote speakers, such as Dr. Winslow Sargeant, who is President Obama’s main adviser from the Small Business Administration. In addition to live events, Building Bridges for Business launched Pittsburgh’s first-ever small business Twitterchat.
