Feedback form is now closed.
How can cross-sector partners come together to address issues of financial access, so that more members of the community can start businesses and fulfill  entrepreneurial ambition?

This facilitated conversation with The Fountain Fund & The Community Investment Collaborative explores these important connections and the future of Greater Charlottesville. It is a continuation of the “Tomorrow Talks” series; a yearlong Tom Tom initiative designed to connect leaders across our city. These energizing, facilitated conversations are designed to make connections, build trust, and inspire new collaborations. Each conversation features a vibrant mix of entrepreneurs, nonprofit and civic leaders, educators, and community organizers. However, the series is not about anyone’s resume. It’s about friends and neighbors who get to know each other and build trust.

For this special edition, we’ll connect and build relationships amongst professionals and diverse community interests who work year-round to bring opportunities to more of the community.

This session is Invitation Only. If you would like to be involved, please email Teira Farley teira@cicville.org to inquire about registration.
