Northern Virginia Technology Council
GO Northern Virginia Town Hall Meetings

The GO Northern Virginia Council invites your input and participation in defining potential GO Virginia projects for funding in 2020. GO Virginia can help fill the gap between High Tech Jobs and the available High Tech Workforce in Northern Virginia through grants for innovative projects.

That's why we are asking you to attend one of three GO Northern VA Town Hall meetings scheduled for November. These 3-hour sessions will provide the GO Northern Virginia Council with new ideas for project development in two specific areas - (1) Accelerating the Development of Growth Companies and (2) Enhancing Technology Transfer and Commercialization from Research Centers and Institutions
