Who we are

WHO WE ARE

Wilmington is the corporate capital of the world.

Wilmington is crossroads of the Northeast corridor.

Wilmington is an internationally recognized hub of  FINTECH...

 

 

And Wilmington is a city in America, like any other.

It struggles with with infrastructure and addiction, with income inequality and workforce readiness.

But this city has many champions, those who take on its toughest challenges, introduce innovative ideas, pilot test programs, and find new ways of thinking about age-old problems.

The Wilmington Alliance is the common ground where those people meet.

CEOs and street sweepers.

Politicians and policy makers.

Funders and futurists.

Activists and artists.

We focus on three key pillars :

... CHEMICAL ENGINEERING ...

... BIO SCIENCE ...

... AND MORE.

Together – allied – for 
Wilmington’s future
.

We connect people who get results with the resources they need to keep going and growing … devising benchmarks, analyzing results, strategically deploying capital and funding, and investing in programs that work to address the city’s greatest needs.

The Alliance is a bridge to this city’s future – a bridge big enough to leave no one behind, and allow everyone to cross together.

“This is about a new, stronger and evolved vision for our City—one that is respectful of the progress we’ve driven so far, responsive to what it means to live and do businesses in Wilmington right now and focused on taking the most innovative approaches in order to build a secure, prosperous future, our success will come from the strength of our collaborations.”

-Chief Executive Officer of the Wilmington Alliance, Renata B. Kowalczyk

“We’re excited to build on the years of experience in both organizations and accelerate the rate of economic growth for the City and people of Wilmington.”

-Chair of Executive Board of the Wilmington Alliance, There du Pont

“Creating a thriving, sustainable Wilmington community isn’t about all of us working in our individual boxes. It’s about the best leaders and doers from the community working together to continually build on what we’ve achieved thus far. The Wilmington Alliance exemplifies this philosophy.”

-Mayor of Wilmington, Mike Purzycki
