The Richmond, Virginia chapter of CAV Angels is rapidly growing thanks to the thriving Richmond startup community. With entrepreneurial hubs like the 1717 Innovation Center housing Startup Virginia which produces consistently innovative early-stage businesses, a CAV Angels presence in Richmond is imperative to help these companies grow. The Richmond chapter puts on a variety of educational and networking events which are prominently supported by Union Bank, McGuireWoods, and KPMG, three of CAV Angels’ generous sponsors.
