Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.

Pennsylvania is leading the way for successful businesses and communities with innovation, imagination, and a legendary can-do spirit.

We are innovators, from Ben Franklin through the talent behind today’s robotics and health sciences startups. The global economy demands fast-paced innovation at all levels, and Pennsylvania is getting the job done – from pioneering the latest technological and scientific advances, developing collaborative support networks for early-state entrepreneurs, to pursuing smart, creative approaches to community development and workforce training.

Pennsylvania has always been known for go-getters and game-changers. We fearlessly forged a new nation. We proudly invented new industries, technologies, and medical breakthroughs. Every day, we celebrate the creative spirit that flows throughout our state, inspired by our past, our people, and our vibrant communities.

You often hear you can’t have it all, but in Pennsylvania, you’ll start believing you can.
