Blue Ridge Tech VenturesBlue Ridge Tech Ventures

Blue Ridge Tech Ventures at A-B Tech, in partnership with AdvantageWest, is linking Western North Carolina’s technology assets to facilitate early stage technology development across the region. The goal of this collaboration is to support the establishment and growth of new technology-based businesses in WNC.

For inventors and entrepreneurs, Blue Ridge Tech Ventures can provide guidance for testing services, prototyping, process scale-up, intellectual property and technology strategy issues. For existing businesses needing research or product development support, Blue Ridge Tech Ventures will work to fill any gaps in the development process. Many types of projects could benefit from collaboration with one of Western North Carolina’s universities, which have advanced design, prototyping and analytical laboratories that can enhance the development of new technologies. Any shared information is kept completely confidential.
