Fourteen women representing a dozen businesses enrolled in the most recent cohort of the Youngstown Business Incubator’s Women in Entrepreneurship program graduated Nov. 15. As part of the graduation ceremony, the women took part in a pitch competition, presenting their business and mission to a panel of judges. The winner was Stacy McDivitt (pictured), the owner of McDivitt Family Maple in Southington. Her company received a $5,000 prize. Patricia McSuley, founder of Compassionate Wigs in Boardman, received a $1,000 prize in recognition of her company’s community impact.
