PITTSBURGH, Pa. – September 3, 2021 – Entrepreneurs Forever (eforever), the flagship program of the Pittsburgh-based nonprofit Mansmann Foundation, announced that Pittsburgh metro native Blair Mundy has been promoted to the role of Community Director for the Pittsburgh Region. Mundy joined Entrepreneurs Forever as the Program and Administrative Coordinator in August 2020. In her new role, Mundy is responsible for developing community relationships, recruiting members, and supporting programs in Pittsburgh and Southwestern Pennsylvania.

Entrepreneurs Forever provides support to existing businesses through professionally moderated monthly peer group meetings. Peer group members share their entrepreneurial journeys with others on a similar path and work through a progressive three-year competency program, ensuring that they build necessary skills for long-term success.

“Connecting small business owners to one another through peer groups is a powerful way to counter the often isolating work of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurs Forever is strengthening our communities by strengthening our small businesses and that’s work I’m proud to be a part of,” said Mundy.

A Pittsburgh native, Mundy earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Hospitality Management and Special Events Management from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2017. Since graduating, she has worked in sales and staff development with Prospera Hospitality, Heartland Restaurant Group, and Millcraft Hospitality.

“Since 2014, Entrepreneurs Forever has grown to serve small business owners in 27communities in Southwestern Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, connecting our members with the people and skills they need to succeed,” said A.J. Drexler, CEO of Entrepreneurs Forever. “Blair understands our members and the communities we serve. She’s proven to be an integral part of our team and will be a great advocate in her new role.

”In addition to their presence in Pittsburgh and Massachusetts, Entrepreneurs Forever recently announced expansion into Western New York. They are partnering with Entrepreneurship for All (EforAll), a nonprofit whose mission is to accelerate economic and social impact through inclusive entrepreneurship, and the nonprofit Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC) to launch peer programs in Buffalo this fall. Together, these organizations will work to provide under-represented individuals with the training and support needed to start, grow, and sustain their businesses. To help launch these initiatives, BNMC connected with financial partners, including lead sponsor KeyBank.
