“C-leveled was founded on the premise that we will always make recommendations to our clients about the people we believe are right for developing their company,” said Denise DeSimone, Founder of C-leveled. “Mike has grown several businesses. He understands the needs of businesses and how to advance them. He has a great vision for our employees and clients.”
Annichine, with 20 years experience in developing local and national businesses, served as the Director of Investment Programs for the Pittsburgh Life Sciences Greenhouse.

This summer there have been numerous achievements for C-leveled. In June, C-leveled moved to its new 20,000-square foot space in Bloomfield where it shares space with portfolio and startup companies. Shortly after the move, came the announcement of the acquisition of Fintel, a leading provider of data services, located in Wisconsin. In July, C-leveled launched HONCHO, a comprehensive data analytics, business intelligence and benchmarking software. August brought the announcement of targeted investment aimed at supporting C-leveled’s commitment.
Annichine is a member of the Three Rivers Entrepreneurs and sits on several local boards including the Pittsburgh Charity Classic, Autism Center of Pittsburgh (ACP), and the Enterprise Forum Pittsburgh (MIT); which supports multiple local entrepreneurs and helps promote an environment that enables success by bringing together talent and ideas with resources that can help them grow.
