Propelle has officially closed its virtual doors.

When we first came up with the idea for Propelle all those years ago, we had no idea the journey we were about to embark upon. We were just excited to be doing something that felt fun.

6 years, 8 masterminds, 3 jam sessions, 2 big events, 20+ happy hours, and a City Council Proclamation later and we are gobsmacked at what an amazing community of women we have been lucky enough to work with, support, and call our friends. 

But the truth is, we are both feeling tugged in new directions and are ready to bring our Propelle chapter to a close. The decision to step away — particularly from the women in the Propelle community — was a difficult one. But it also feels like a necessary next step for us both.

We feel extremely lucky to have been a part of the Pittsburgh entrepreneurial scene for as long as we have and truly believe that the women we have come to know, support, and love (that’s you!) will continue to do amazing things.

THANK YOU, from the bottom of our hearts, for your support over the months and years that you’ve been with us. It has meant the absolute world to us.
