Innovation Works celebrates milestones, announces regional energy alliance with NETL

Strip District-based 4Moms was the setting for the Innovation Works annual meeting last night, a celebration of milestones achieved by the region’s early-stage investment firm.
 
The largest crowd ever—500 by all estimates—milled about the headquarters of the growing high-tech, baby gear company, now at 88 employees. The treat of the night was a tour of the digs and a sneak peak of what’s to come: a robotic car seat, a lighter weight stroller and an infant chair with the gentle sway of a mother.
 
Those of you who believed that startups could fuel the region’s economy are here tonight, Henry Thorne of 4Moms told the crowd. When small companies grow into large companies and succeed, jobs are created. 
 
The theme, “Made by Entreprenuers,” told the story of some of Pittsburgh’s brightest new companies. Apply for a job today and chances are the listing is generated by The Resumator. IBM’s data analysis efforts are taking place in their Squirrel Hill office, once the startup Vivisimo. threeRivers 3D is making strides as one of the nation’s highest volume manufacturers of 3D scanners. FutureDerm, an AlphaLab startup, sold out of its first product in just three weeks.
 
“We have to feel really good that Pittsburgh is on the right track,” said Rich Lunak, Innovation Works CEO and president. Especially with a company like 4Moms that is building a consumer brand that may one day rival Apple.
 
Prior to the meeting, Lunak shared a major announcement. A new alliance has been formed in the region to commercialize technology coming out of the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) with several collaborative partners. Lab research will be conducted in Pittsburgh; the alliance will be headed by NETL and Michele Migliuolo, commercialization alliance manager with IW. 
 
Looking back, this was a good year for job growth and revenues earned by the current crop of companies, Lunak reflected. New products were launched. Strategic partnerships are underway that include a new manufacturing accelerator, AlphaLab Gear. 
 
Looking forward, the agile hardware sector will be a real strength for the region. While software and Internet companies are a strong sector locally, expect energy and advanced materials to make their mark, he said.
 
Among the other highlights:
 
IW invested $4.8 million in technology companies in 2012. By comparison, IW invested $4.9 million in 2011 and $4.6 million  in 2010.
 
IW’s seed fund and accelerator companies accounted for 65% of all Pittsburgh companies raising venture rounds, and were successful in attracting nearly $209 million from VCs, angels, corporate/strategic investors and other sources.
 
Of the follow-on funding, $99 million (45%) came from venture capital and the other largest share of $73 million (35%) came from angel investors.
 
583 jobs were created in the region and retained attributed to IW assistance.

Pittsburgh among the top performing regions in country says Allegheny Conference

A record crowd attended the annual luncheon held at the Fairmont yesterday to hear highlights of the Allegheny Conference's 2012 annual report with speakers ranging from PNC's Jim Rohr to Acquion Energy's CEO Scott Pearson.
 
David Malone, vice chair of the Pittsburgh Regional Alliance, reported on wins and current areas of focus. "If the last 30 years were focused on job creation," said Malone, the next 30 years will be focus on education, training and re-training for jobs.

The number of "wins" reported this year "underscore the confidence companies have in this region," and underscored the fundamental strengths of the diverse economy, said Malone in his introduction."I know you will find these numbers exciting," he said then cracked, "along with my presentation."

In the wrap up, Dennis Yablonsky reported on 2013 priorities, which include the dual infrastructure challenges of sewage problems and transportation.

Among the takeaways:
·       The 10-county Pittsburgh region is one of only three U.S. metros to have fully recovered from the recession, according to the Brookings Institution.
 
·       The Pittsburgh Regional Alliance (PRA) reports 269 economic development deals (or wins) in terms of investment and development projects. The deals are expected to create 8,388 new jobs in the region over the next few years and retain 3,422 jobs to a total employment impact of 12,000 jobs.
 
·       A total $3.2 billion in capital investment was reported in 2012, the highest amount since 2007 when the record-keeping began. Investment projects were $1.8 billion, $750 million more than 2011. Development projects totaled $1.4 billion.
 
·       2012 marked a year of record-high employment and Pittsburgh position as a national leader for job growth in high-wage industries.
 
·       Existing regional businesses that are expanding remain the backbone of the economy and account for the majority of announced deals. In 2012, 72 percent of the deals (151) involved the expansion or retention of existing companies. Expansions on average account for two-thirds of investment wins over the past five years.
