The MetroHartford Alliance is the region’s business and economic development organization that drives economic prosperity by leading a collaborative and unified strategic effort to retain and create jobs and to promote the Greater Hartford Region as an exceptional place to build a business, an industry, a career and a future.
The MetroHartford Alliance was created with a progressive eye on the future development of the Hartford Region. Formed in 2001, the Alliance grew out of a merger between the Hartford Chamber of Commerce, founded in 1799, and the MetroHartford Economic Growth Council, which focused on economic development leadership.
We are the leading business and economic development organization in the Region.
More than 1,000 businesses, municipalities and organizations are among our membership ranks. We support pro-growth legislation, help local companies expand, assist start-ups, encourage government investment in key infrastructure assets, develop programs for young professionals, and recruit companies from other states to create a presence in the Region.
