MAXIMIZE YOUR IMPACT
SourceLink Virginia is the premier online resource connecting entrepreneurs and small businesses to resource providers across the Commonwealth. A project of Virginia Cooperative Extension at Virginia Tech, this online portal connects aspiring and established entrepreneurs with resources to start, run and grow their small businesses.
We are very eager to discover new organizations with whom to collaborate and feature on SourceLink Virginia. As you've seen, the key features are: 1) the searchable Resource Navigator® directory, 2) the regional and statewideCentral Calendar, and 3) the blog built into the SiteConnex℠ web template that lets us provide you with news and views impacting the entrepreneurial and economic development community.
SourceLink Virginia is an affiliate of SourceLink (formerly U.S.SourceLink), one of the nation’s largest network of entrepreneurship support organizations. SourceLink helps provide “R&D for your entrepreneurial community,” with a variety of technology and outreach tools that economic and business developers can tap into.
Started in Kansas City in 2003, the SourceLink model has grown to over two dozen cities, regions, and states. The Virginia affiliate was launched in 2014. Any government agency or nonprofit organization (and many for-profit companies) that provide services to entrepreneurs and small businesses are eligible to be listed in SourceLink Virginia as a Resource Partner.
The benefits of joining our growing network include:
+ Increased quality of new client contacts
+ Integration of SourceLink Virginia into your existing local & regional initiatives via website script
+ Free publicity for your services & events
+ Generating data to support your policy advocacy & program creation
+ Discovery of new partners and collaborations
