Doing Business Here

Our diverse economy speaks for itself: entrepreneurs and corporate executives, small businesses and global companies, world class educational institutions and high-tech clusters. Rensselaer County is a top choice for businesses looking to start or expand.

The Chamber has served as the voice of business in the community since 1900. As such, the Chamber strives to support business development and provide resources to businesses starting up; those who are expanding or relocating a business; or any business, both large and small, who has general business inquiries. 

In recent years, the region's economy has expanded from a government-centered economy to become a hub for technology and creative industries. Key assets, such as our educational institutions, geographic location, talented and innovative workforce, entrepreneurial ecosystems and comprehensive health care systems make this area prime for doing business.

In conjunction with our allies at the federal, state, county and city-wide level, the Chamber is committed to making “Doing Business Here” as seamless as possible.  Our professional and knowledgeable staff can assist you with everything from community data to incentive information to site selection.  Please let us know how we can be of service to you.

Quick Fact: In a report issued by U.S. News and World Report, the Albany-Troy-Schenectady metro area was ranked #3 nationally (behind only San Francisco and San Jose) as a place to find a job in technology, ahead of other major markets such as Austin, Dallas, Boston, Washington D.C., Seattle, and Detroit.
