The mission of the MetroHartford Alliance is to ensure that the Hartford Region competes aggressively and successfully for jobs, capital and talent so that it remains a premier place for all people to live, play, work, start and grow a business, and raise a family.
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.
