About CTI

The Charlottesville Technology Incubator, launched in 2009 on the downtown mall, strives to serve as a dynamic hub between technology start-ups and the sources of investment capital, intellectual currency, and community resources needed to mentor and accelerate their commercial development.

By utilizing our regional resources, CTI builds beneficial relationships for both the technology start-up and the individuals and organizations that help them grow. These relationships are the building blocks for future business dealings as the start-ups mature.

It is our goal not to serve primarily as a source of office space but rather be a conduit to industry, business, IP, and startup knowledge that enables entrepreneurs to better position themselves for success. As start-ups mature and graduate out of the incubator they will add value to the local economy by providing jobs for staff, young professionals and senior managers alike.

CTI is a member of the Virginia Business Incubation Association and the National Business Incubation Association.
