Dominion: Supporting small business and innovation

"Dominion’s backing of the tour builds on another example of the company’s commitment to supporting entrepreneurship: the Dominion Resources Innovation Center (DRIC).

The center is a technology incubator that offers help to start-up firms with assistance such as networking, mentoring, high-level business strategy, and special events and classes. Topics covered at DRIC events in the past 12 months have ranged from the future of cars to brand protection to the art of crafting the perfect pitch speech.

The DRIC also provides office and lab space for emerging entrepreneurs at its headquarters, a renovated fire station in downtown Ashland. Another bonus for the tenants is access to many research resources at the Virginia Biotechnology Research Park at VCU."
