Location. Location. — Avenu Is Well-Connected!

Over the past three decades Pittsburgh’s economy has evolved into a robust range of industries including social, cultural, financial, biotech-life sciences, advanced manufacturing, robotics-AI and nanotechnology — attracting diverse and highly educated global populations.

In the midst of it all Avenu offers a campus of affordable creative workspaces in a corridor connected to the Oakland-University-UPMC Medical center where Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh spin out some of the best minds (and startups) in the world. Culture also abounds at the Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History, and the world-celebrated Phipps Conservatory.

Adjacent to Oakland, Uptown is home to Duquesne University, the Pittsburgh Penguin’s PPG Paints Arena, and the UPMC-Mercy campus. These institutions attract 3M+ students, employees, and visitors annually for education, healthcare, sports and entertainment — the hallmarks of thriving urban environments.

The Fifth/Forbes corridor easily connects to all major transportation arteries in and out of the city.
Avenu occupies two Keystone Innovation Zones (KIZ) — total benefits to qualifying companies equaled $3.03M (as of May 2017) — including PA Tax Credits and a free internship program paid through Avenu partner Urban Innovation 21.

Find What Drives You!

Avenu’s launch theme, “Find What Drives You,” celebrates those who help drive development along the Fifth/Forbes corridor — unlocking their own potential at the same time they unlock the potential of their communities. Human focused and business driven, Avenu takes you to a new level of participation in the Fifth/Forbes corridor.

Avenu invites you to collaborate and connect: Lease a desk or a workspace, build a business on the street or in the Cloud, offer a workshop, develop a multi-story condo or workspace, or fabricate something at HackPittsburgh.
