We offer both, open networking and facilitated discussions intended to drive collaboration and create growth within the innovation ecosystem.

Stephanie’s entrepreneurial journey started following an unexpected layoff shortly after moving to Boston. She always loved decor and re-arranging spaces for friends and family events so after this surprise, she decided to try and make a business out of it. By leaning into her innate creative talent and marrying it with her corporate merchandising skill set, she launched her business, cycleStyling. After meeting Marisa Nieves at an event in 2023, Stephanie signed up for the CREATE program, which helped her validate her business idea and create her business model.
