CAV Angels’ Charlottesville chapter serves as a centerpoint for the club, prioritizing strong relationships with the University and beyond. With an ever-growing population of UVA alumni in the entrepreneurial and investing spheres of the surrounding area to connect with, the Charlottesville chapter consciously fosters the entrepreneurial ecosystem among all members of the UVA family in the Virginia northwest. The Charlottesville chapter is prominently supported by McGuireWoods and Blue Ridge Bank, two of CAV Angels’ generous sponsors, in its educational and networking endeavors.
