Town Hall Series to Expand Economic Opportunity in the Commonwealth
Jun 17 @ 10:30 pm – Jun 18 @ 9:00 am

Office of the Secretary of Commerce and Trade
Town Hall Series to Expand Economic Opportunity in the Commonwealth

Virginia’s Role in High-Growth (tech-centric) and Research-Driven Economic Development  

During the 2019 Legislative Session, two bills were considered that would have created a new authority or made several changes to an existing authority around funding and oversight of research commercialization, entrepreneurship, and innovation economic development initiatives in the Commonwealth. Although there was universal support for more efficient use of state resources, the legislature decided – due to concerns addressed by many affected stakeholders – to delay pending an effort led by the Secretary of Commerce and Trade to assess and recommend a plan – statewide-backed and driven by a diverse workgroup of subject matter experts – to consolidate, restructure, and transition programs from related agencies or entities to a structure that ensures more collaboration and coordination in the Commonwealth’s innovation sector. That process starts locally through these Town Halls. Join us for an interactive discussion on Virginia’s role in high-growth and research-driven economic development.

Please RSVP to the following Town Halls across Virginia. Feel free to come to any and all sessions that are applicable to your area of interest.
