Baker Presents at Conference

Brian Baker, executive director for the UMW Center for Economic Development, presented at the Virginia Business Incubation Association Conference this month.  His presentation on “The Other Accelerator” discussed how existing businesses can be incubated through a virtual process to get export trade ready. A notable feature of the event was the CEO+ Program, a partnership between the Rappahannock Economic Development Corporation and the UMW-CED, which will be used as the first stage to accelerating the capability of regional small companies to do business in global markets.

The conference was held in Charlottesville and convened economic development and business development stakeholders.  The Virginia Business Incubation Association is a statewide organization to advance business incubation across the Commonwealth.
