Chanel Scales joined MORTAR in 2015 with a business named Shingo. She was looking for opportunities to increase exposure for her business and we connected her with an opportunity to curate fashion shows through P&G’s Cincinnati Music Festival.

MORTAR helped Chanel access space via one of our four Brick Pop Up Shop spaces, as well as capital through our Iron Chest Fund, giving her the opportunity to grow her business. She recently opened “Own Lane Shoetique” in the historic Over-The-Rhine neighborhood.

Due to her dedication and hard work, Chanel was named the OTR Chamber of Commerce’s Entrepreneur of the Year in 2019.
