Virginia's a great place to live and build a business.
But accessing capital here can be more challenging than in other geographic environments.
I'm encouraged as an entrepreneur that VA4E is here to fix that."
Sarah Rumbaugh, CEO, Relish
"Too often, I find myself traveling from Richmond to New York or the Valley to raise money. I sometimes see local investors there! I'm excited because this enables us to find help where we live."
"The VA4E platform is a game changer in helping 757 Angels find great investments across the Commonwealth--and help every entrepreneur we come in contact with find the resources they need!"
"Very often, being able to build a business depends on not what you know, but who you know. This well-trodden pathway actually cuts out the vast majority of entrepreneurs. I'm excited that VA4E is working to solve the problem."
"This is the first place we look for entrepreneurs in Virginia. VA4E is bringing the Virginia ecosystem together. "
