Founded in 2001, the MetroHartford Alliance united the business expertise of the MetroHartford Chamber of Commerce and the economic development leadership of MetroHartford Economic Growth Council to form the region's lead business and economic development organization. Today, the Alliance has built a 2,300 member driven organization that brings together business, non-profit organizations, civic, and government leaders invested in the region's future economic growth and its viability for robust business development. Providing visible and valuable leadership that enables the region to fulfill the opportunities related to sustainable economic growth is our mission. And we work daily to fulfill our vision to compete as a vibrant region to work, play, live and raise a family through an aggressive business strategy designed to achieve our goals and set priorities for the Region. With the committed and collaborative strength of our members, together we are building a new and vibrant city and region with a talented workforce, world-class businesses, and innovative thinking that has earned us the title of New England's Rising Star.
