Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf visited ARM’s headquarters – Mill 19 in Pittsburgh – on January 24, 2020 to announce his new budget proposal centered on strengthening innovation in the state. During his visit, the Governor experienced how much the site has grown since his visit in 2017 when Mill 19 was just a shell.
The announced budget proposal includes a $12.35 million funding increase to drive an evidence-based, statewide innovation strategy through three fundamental building blocks: education, workforce development, and economic development.
“A strong community and entrepreneurial network are crucial for success. This holds true for start-ups, as well as established businesses,” said Gov. Wolf. “I’m proposing a strategic statewide innovation investment plan that will help get us on the right track to making Pennsylvania an innovation leader.”
