Capital Ecosystem Development Project

Upcoming Access to Capital Event Series

Project Deliverables

In order to create and sustain a vibrant start-up community in Region 2 and across Virginia, access to risk capital to support research, development, and commercialization of innovative technologies is necessary.  With funding from the GO Virginia Region 2 Council and match partners from within the region, Valleys Innovation Council began a regional capital ecosystem development project in 2018.

As part of this project, VIC created a regional capital landscape study and accompanying interactive data dashboards to examine the availability of, ease of access to, and recent historic activity levels of funding within GO Virginia Region 2. The original report and dashboards are available below.
