As Executive Director of CBIC and Founding Executive Director of the Charlottesville Angel Network (CAN), I'm often asked:

  • "Where do the local tech and entrepreneurial people meet up (and where can I find a job, employee, mentor, investor, co-founder, consultant)?"
  • "How can I stay informed about local tech and startup happenings?"
  • "What resources are in the region for an entrepreneur starting up a tech or innovation-based venture?"

CBIC publishes a weekly opt-in e-newsletter, which provides answers and insights into these very questions. 

In addition, CBIC maintains the below inventory of active groups, meet-ups, funding sources, online forums, jobs boards, makerspaces, accelerators, and more that collectively stitch together and inform our tech, entrepreneurial and innovation-based start-up ecosystem.
