Pittsburgh has long been known for its winning sports teams and world class museums, but these days, Pittsburgh fares well as a top city becoming a hub for technology start-ups. Although we pale in comparison to heavy weights like Silicon Valley, New York, and Boston, the City of Pittsburgh offers compelling incentives to attract and retain the best talent in our region. First-rate universities and computer science departments, like our local Carnegie Mellon University, have attracted talented students from around the world, seeding technology professionals focused on developing startups that can help boost our local economy.

Pittsburgh has become a place where startups are succeeding, where investors want to live, and students want to stay following graduation. With mega tax breaks and innovative business incubators, the progression of local startups has enabled a cross generational, collaborative entrepreneurial community to develop. Talent retention and improved financial resources for entrepreneurs, are positioning us as a city for success.

“We are not a cookie cutter city,” said John Bilyak, CCIM, Principal & Director of Industrial Brokerage at NAI Pittsburgh Commercial. “With well-preserved neighborhoods, locally owned shops and restaurants, and a first class cultural district, Pittsburgh provides a down home personality within a growing business and technological community. It has become a city of renewal, where generations of people continue to live, work and grow together.”

Earlier this year, Forbes.com ranked Pittsburgh #64 for Best Places for Business and Careers. Pittsburgh’s biggest industries--health care, technology and education--are necessary regardless of the economic outlook.
