Embrace evolution with technology…for good.

Charlottesville’s technology sector is one of the region’s most vibrant areas of economic opportunity and a source of global innovation and ideas. Our 2023 conference provided a state of the union for Charlottesville Tech, bringing together various sectors including biotechnology, energy, data, and AI. We learned how local innovators are driving global change and the role of diversity in ensuring that multiple voices are shaping decisions.

Building upon last year’s foundation, TFG 2024 moves into the next chapter of our growing tech ecosystem. Through a combination of panels, lightning talks from experts leading the way, and hands-on workshops, we’ll explore the intersections of technology and climate, education, health and wellness, and how we can work together with other entrepreneurial hubs nearby.

You’ll walk away informed, inspired and connected.
