The Chamber of Fairfax County provides a wealth of resources to help entrepreneurs, startups, and small businesses launch and grow in the long-term. Barry DuVal, President and CEO of the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, recently announced that Virginia has been consecutively recognized as the best state for business by CNBC. Northern Virginia is a resource-rich region, with 90% of local businesses being small. This means that the best business ideas may be based on one's own talents or knowledge.
The Virginia Small Business Finance Authority (VSBFA) is the financial branch of the Virginia Department of Small Business and Provider Diversity and provides funding options for small businesses. The Northern Virginia Black Chamber of Commerce (NVBCC) hosts events that focus on networking roundtables, allowing attendees to exchange business cards, develop new leads and share a 60-second presentation with each table. The NVBCC also launched a digital business magazine and offers members news, events and announcements in their inbox. Additionally, the Alliance Technology Consortium is partnering with the NVBCC to host a five-part video conference on business and technology.
