What Dreams May Come

Harkening back to Pittsburg's original industrial boom, The Foundry @ Block22 is designed to focus the power of visionaries and create the city's next generation of entrepreneurs. Located on the ground floors of the National Bank and Opera House Hotel buildings, The Foundry is home to a variety of innovative, creative teams, including Pittsburg State’s University Strategic Initiatives unit.
