Cville Tech, Innovation, Startup & Entrepreneur Resources

As the executive director of CBIC, I'm often asked, "Where do the local tech and entrepreneurial people meet up, how can I stay informed about local happenings, and what startup resources are nearby?" 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:

Taking the Plunge

There I was suspended with my body standing perpendicular against the wall of a 50-foot rappel tower.  Above a Marine drill instructor was barking at me.  I could see his veins popping out of his forehead.  “Lean back, look over your right shoulder, and double-time backwards!  Do it, now!”

The Question is in the Answer

Question: How many Art Directors does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
Answer: Does it have to be a lightbulb?

It’s a joke of course, but it's worth asking the question for the simple fact that you might come up with a different answer had you never asked. One of my favorite things I learned in architecture school is that once you ask the right question, you're well on your way to finding the answer.
