International Women entrepreneurs visit to learn from the best, Edward Marc Chocolatiers, a Vibrant Pittsburgh employer member.

The IVLP program, “Entrepreneurship as the Engine of Prosperity and Stability,” brings seven International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) groups to participate in this professional exchange which aims to promote small business development, innovation, and entrepreneurial acumen as paths to socio-economic wellbeing and political stability.

Pittsburgh’s Edward Marc and The Hidden Hills Dairy were the highlights of the program. The visitors were very impressed by the ingenuity of both resources – not just their business models and entrepreneurship, but the fact that both of them created some of their manufacturing equipment and other systems from scratch rather than hiring outside vendors to do this for them. View video.
