The Steel City Startup Guide — Pittsburgh Startup Directory

Our beloved city of Pittsburgh’s startup community is filled with so many incredible companies, job opportunities, and people that it can sometimes feel overwhelming to explore. So I made the Pittsburgh Startup Guide, the directory that I wished I had when I was starting. I hope this helps you find what you are looking for in our thriving community.

If this guide is useful to you, please share it with others who you think it could help. If you have feedback or suggestions to improve this resource, please reach out.

Wishing you every success,
