Emerging Growth

As entrepreneurial and start-up activity has grown in our region, so has Sisterson's Emerging Growth practice area.

We have experience working with companies at all stages of growth and assisting businesses from "cradle to grave." The professionals on our emerging growth team focus on this practice area and provide sound and timely advice at an affordable cost. Contact us if you would like information on R&D credits, the Keystone Innovation Zone (KIZ) Tax Credit Program, or other matters. Our professionals are also available to present to your organization or group our presentation Doing it Right the First Time for start-up companies.

Emerging growth and start-up companies get the best of both worlds in hiring Sisterson - a firm large enough to handle complex issues and small enough to give personal attention.

We are committed to supporting the development of regional entrepreneurs and are proud to support such organizations as Innovations Works, AlphaLab and AlphaLab Gear, Pittsburgh Venture Capital Association, Project Olympus at Carnegie Mellon University, and the University of Pittsburgh.
