Technology has an important impact on business and nonprofit operations. Technological infrastructure affects the culture, efficiency, and relationships of an organization. VCC is partnering with the Virginia Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network, UVA Wise, and Aegis IT Solutions to present a third round of the popular Refocus & Rebuild series. This bi-weekly, online series will focus on all aspects of technology including online payment systems, cyber security, data backup, disaster recovery, and more.
Alongside our partners, we’ve hosted a number of webinars designed to support and educate stakeholders. Check below for archived recordings from our past series.
From August 2020 to January 2021, Virginia Community Capital and Foodshed Capital hosted a webinar series presenting financial resources and programs available to localize and strengthen Virginia’s food system. Each webinar featured food system funders and organizations who have received financial support. We hope highlighting these resources catalyzes change within organizations and communities for building a more just, equitable, and local food system.
In October 2020, we hosted a conversation with real estate developers Ed Walker and Dave McCormack. Known for their catalytic projects and innovative approaches to rehab and reuse developments, these two developers shared their experience with COVID-19, how it has impacted their current work, and how they are adjusting their approach to future projects.
