This requires actually building something. Let’s not just study and sit. Let’s not just listen to speakers and go home. Let’s create some tangible foundations of business on high-growth opportunities and support those involved to the extent they grow and hire.
With that in mind, the Hampton Roads Innovation Collaborative (HRIC) is working to launch an innovative business accelerator project to speed entrepreneurship and job growth by harnessing regional assets.
Accelerators in cyber security, data science, bio-science and sea-rise mitigation are expected to provide solutions to Hampton Roads’ pillar industries, branding the region as a Mid-Atlantic technology hub founded on collaborative advantage.
