Leading Pittsburgh’s Economic Development

Is your company looking to open an office in Pittsburgh or the surrounding region? You’ve come to the right place. We oversee the 10-county regional effort responsible for marketing and growing Pittsburgh economic development to bring prosperity to southwestern Pennsylvania.

The Pittsburgh Regional Alliance, a non-profit organization, works with site selectors, business decision-makers, companies and people from around the world to help them establish their presence in the region. All of our support services are complimentary and confidential.

We meet business and personal needs as you work through the decision process (no matter what stage) on where to conduct business or live in Pittsburgh. When a decision is made, we help soften the landing into our community and assist with integration, adaption and growth in the Pittsburgh area.

The Pittsburgh Regional Alliance is an affiliate of the Allegheny Conference on Community Development. Both are economic development organizations working internally and externally to cultivate the economic growth of the Pittsburgh region.  Our initiatives include improving the quality of life in the region as well as driving job growth, small business success and business development in both the public and private sectors.
