Mike Capsambelis from Awesome Pittsburgh
Mike co-founded Awesome Pittsburgh in 2011 to get money into the hands of brilliant, passionate people with ideas that just needed a little push. Awesome Pittsburgh gives $1000 each month to people with creative proposals for connecting our communities, surprising us with art or technology, or otherwise making the city a better place to live, work and play. Awesome Pittsburgh has funded projects ranging from a floating art venue and a puppet photo booth to an outdoor elementary school classroom and fluoride treatments for kids without access to dental care.
Outside of Awesome Pittsburgh, Mike is a product manager with Google Pittsburgh and collaborates with the company's Entrepreneurial Outreach team to find ways to support the local startup and small business communities. He also serves on the board of Uptown Partners, trying to bring even more awesomeness to one of the city's hidden neighborhood gems.
HOST WITH THE MOST
Many thanks to Google for hosting this month's CreativeMornings/Pittsburgh event!
Parking is free in the Bakery Square parking garage (please do not use the lot near shops). The door to the main building in Bakery Square is directly opposite the exit door from the garage. Head on into the Lobby and take the elevator to the 5th floor- that's where you'll see some fabulous folks at the registration table!
