We made it through our first year in business and could not be happier! We became part of an amazing start up community and have learned so much in the process. These past twelve months have been challenging, busy, frightening, amazing and humbling. We are grateful to every one that supported PIT Shop in one way or another. A special thanks to the social media community for every “follow”, “like”, and/or “share”, it has truly helped our business grow.
Some of our accomplishments:
We found a space for our HQ at Alloy 26. Alloy 26 is a group of the brightest entrepreneurs sharing ideas and a passion for changing the world that is located in the northside of Pittsburgh.
We won TWO grants with a total value of 8K! The Northside innovation grant competition & The Dollar bank grant for start ups. Thank you Urban Innovation 21 & Dollar Bank for believing in PIT Shop!
PIT Shop donated 500 pieces of fruit and 250 healthy snacks to local first responders through our PIT Cares program!
Kayla Snyder joined the team as our marketing intern.
