“A key to our regional economic health is the ability of companies to grow and expand their markets. Access to sufficient capital is one of those stumbling blocks that we are working hard to remove so that this economy can thrive,” said Jeff Tanner, Dean of the Strome College of Business. “A great deal of attention has recently been paid to start-ups and rightly so. But this forum will reach a broader audience and can help businesses find opportunities for the capital they need to expand.”
Chris Topping of Virginia Community Capital will act as Moderator. In addition, the Managing Partner of Vandeventer Black LLP, Michael L. Sterling, will be presenting the Vandeventer Black Award for Excellence in Business Strategy which recognizes innovative business thinking and successful execution.
