We look forward to meeting Mr. Ray and hearing him speak.


The inaugural VT KnowledgeWorks Entrepreneurship Summit will be held on Thursday, April 2, 2009, in Blacksburg, Virginia.  Things could get dramatic.

During the CVG’s LiveFire! ™ session in the afternoon of the Summit, five companies selected as pitch-worthy by the Charlottesville Venture Group (CVG), in affiliation with the Virginia Active Angels Network (VAAN), will pitch in public, answer questions in public, listen to the angel investors express pros – and cons – in public, right there in front of an auditorium full of 100 silent, scrutinizing audience members.

Jim Flowers terms it "American Idol" for business.

The auditorium only has 100 seats.  If you don't want to miss "American Idol" for business, you might want to register now.
