By now you've probably seen the news about Pittsburgh being ranked #2 for growth in Venture Capital investments. This is great news for a number of reasons, not the least of which is putting our region 'on the radar' across the the entrepreneurial community in the US and around the world.
Help Startups has known for some time that our region is poised for explosive growth, driven by the strength of our dynamic entrepreneurial community. While neither, "Here we go, entrepreneurs, here we go!", or "Let's go entrepreneurs" have the same ring as "Here we go, Steelers, here we go!", or "Let's go Pens!", the sentiment is the same.
As I asked in a recent post on the Pittsburgh Today web site, "Have you hugged an entrepreneur today?" Entrepreneurs are the engine that will make Pittsburgh a major success story in the early years of the Twenty First century. Thirty years ago we were known as the "City of Champions", and those days are about to return!
