Aurora parks itself in Pittsburgh, now its sole corporate headquarters

PITTSBURGH — Aurora Innovation Inc. announced it will be adopting Pittsburgh as its sole corporate headquarters, dropping its dual headquarters status with Mountain View, California, as the autonomous vehicle company races to go public toward the end of the year.

As part of that announcement, Aurora also said it will be donating $65,000 to fund STEM-related requests solicited from Allegheny County teachers via the DonorsChoose platform to further support future generations of those looking to enter the science and technology industry.

“With its incredible universities and focus on innovation, Pittsburgh has been home to Aurora since we were founded and we’re committed to continued growth right here in this community,” said Aurora VP of Government Relations Gerardo Interiano in a prepared statement. “With a firm belief in the future of this city and its workforce, we’re excited to have our corporate headquarters here and be making a donation that will help fund the city’s next generation of technologists and roboticists.”
