Immigrant Entrepreneur and Community Celebration
The GlobalPittsburgh’s Immigrant Entrepreneur Celebration was launched in 2016 to showcase the talent, tenacity, and innovative thinking of the “newest newcomers” who have made Pittsburgh their home and helped to make it a world-class city. To date, 40 foreign-born business owners and professionals received awards in a variety of categories.
We received 28 unique nominations from the community members for the 5th annual Immigrant Entrepreneur Award Ceremony. On May 7, 2022, we honored immigrant entrepreneurs and professionals from around the globe that have made an impact on the greater Pittsburgh community.
GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays – Monthly Networking Happy Hour
GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays is our organization’s signature networking event. These monthly happy hours are both informal social gatherings for globally-minded community members and a valuable means of developing contacts and forging friendships for newcomers to our region. First Thursdays is a monthly night of socializing where GlobalPittsburgh members and friends welcome State Department guests from abroad, international students, and expatriates from all over the world. It’s the easiest way to experience the world without leaving Pittsburgh. Partnerships and sponsorships are available and everyone is welcome!
REGISTER for our First Thursdays on April 7 from 5:30 – 8:00 PM.
Every year, #GlobalBBQ brings together people from different cultural backgrounds to celebrate the common themes that unite us all: music, games, dancing, and most importantly, food! Every year is different, but the BBQ always includes great eats with various ethnic food trucks and caterers, live music, family activities, and a raffle with awesome prizes. Annual #GlobalBBQ has been generously supported by Delta.
