on July 11, 2013

The Kauffman Foundation’s new multimedia channel, ID8 Nation, spotlights entrepreneurial communities throughout the country. The first featured city, Pittsburgh, transformed its economy through entrepreneurship and now hosts a number of diverse startups.

“By examining the entrepreneurial elements of cities like Pittsburgh, we hope to shed light on what makes these ecosystems successful and offer up lessons to others,” said Thom Ruhe, vice president of Entrepreneurship at the Kauffman Foundation. “Pittsburgh’s story of building a diversified economy after the collapse of the steel industry and an entrepreneurial ecosystem powered by its universities is inspirational and educational.”
