Forging Ahead Strengthening Pennsylvania’s Roots
The University of Pittsburgh is a financial anchor, fueling local businesses and economies with an impact that extends to every corner of the commonwealth. Pitt’s Institute for Entrepreneurial Excellence works with local businesses, helping entrepreneurs boost their capacity, overcome financial hurdles and develop their staff. In 2020, the commonwealth asked Pitt to expand its Small Business Development Center services to residents in Beaver, Butler and Lawrence counties. The results: $20 million in increased sales, $25 million in capital formation and 10,000 jobs supported and created.
