A $250K grant from GO Virginia will help local incubator Startup Virginia expand its support for early-stage entrepreneurs. The funds will allow Startup Virginia to implement new technology platforms, add staff and enhance incubator services. Additionally, the organization will work to further develop two programs designed for earliest-stage startups, the Idea Factory and the Entrepreneur Certificate Course. This is part of a $3.6M deployment of funds to support 13 projects across Virginia focused on expanding workforce development and talent pipelines in key industries, fostering business and improving infrastructure.
