The Pittsburgh Startup Challenge is the first of many investments we plan to make into the Pittsburgh community. We believe that Pittsburgh is, and has been throughout history, one of the strongest and most important innovation communities in the world.

Here’s what else is on the horizon:

The Pittsburgh Entrepreneurship Platform (April 2021)

OneValley is developing an online community platform and resource hub exclusively for startups emerging from the Pittsburgh region in partnership with Ascender. PEP will connect the growing startup communities and innovators of the Pittsburgh region on one platform, and form a virtual bridge between Pittsburgh-based startups and global investors, enterprises and talent.


The OneValley Pittsburgh Innovation Center at the Roundhouse in Hazelwood Green (Summer 2021)

OneValley looks forward to the launch of its Pittsburgh Innovation Center at the Roundhouse, which will house and support startups, accelerator partners, VCs, non-profits, and corporate innovation teams. In addition to our startup community, we are excited to welcome students, local small businesses, and the broader community to participate in our regular events and workshops, both at the Roundhouse and virtually!"
