NuSpark

NuSpark ~ A place where ideas ignite

NuSpark is a unique space for creating, collaborating and working to build big ideas into new ventures. It is a multi-faceted start-up resource connecting the New River and Roanoke valleys of Virginia with the goal of creating 10 new start-ups and generating $10 million in cash flow within two years. Located in Blacksburg, NuSpark is a work and collaboration space for innovators with pre-launch start-ups. Here, big thinkers can build their big ideas into new ventures, be it a new technology, application of a technology to a social problem, or a new commercial idea.

Sometimes, even big thinkers with big ideas need a little inspiration.  NuSpark provides thought provoking opportunities for teams through one-on-one sessions and mentoring.  Individuals learn from the collaboration which occurs and from the open sessions on topics entrepreneurs need:  how to validate ideas with customer insight, how to get start up funding.... and everything in between.  Check the events calendar for thought provoking opportunities.

Created out of a need for an early-stage entreprenurial space, the NuSpark program is a collaborative effort of many individuals and various organizations in the regional innovation ecosystem.
