Program Description

Entrepreneurs and early-stage ventures have a lot decisions to make and challenges to overcome. And there are a lot of new ventures popping up in the Roanoke – Blacksburg, Virginia region these days. So, we’re going to try something new at Tech & Toast – a series of vignettes. Three early stage ventures will tell us more about what they are doing and how the RBTC community might be able to assist them. After all, that’s what the RBTC is all about, helping grow our small firms into healthy, successful companies. Let’s use our collective knowledge and collective network to make a difference.  As Paul Graham notes here, the environment and community surrounding a start-up are key components to its success!

Discussion Points and Take-Aways

1. Learn more about a few early-stage companies in the region.
2. Find out how you may be able to help them take the next step.
3. Discover possible collaboration opportunities for your business.
