We’re Putting Roanoke & Blacksburg on the Technology Map
And you can get in on the ground floor. RBTC has served as the region’s premiere technology community for over two decades. We’re the gathering place for hundreds of leading companies and institutions that employ more than 20,000 technology professionals pushing the envelope with their world-changing ideas and tech.
How do we do it? We curate over 50 annual events aimed at strengthening the tech-based economy in partnership with our portfolio allies Verge and RAMP (Regional Accelerator and Mentoring Program). Our member companies represent the building blocks of economic success in the region. They’re actively creating a strong and successful innovation infrastructure for generations to come and we’re committed to assisting their efforts through high-value programming and support.

Shaping the identity of a place isn’t possible alone. Our sponsors are the engine that powers the work of creating an innovation ecosystem in the region. When you sponsor an RBTC event, you’re contributing to the transformation of the Roanoke & Blacksburg technology economy by investing in infrastructure that has the potential to change the region, state, and the world.
Support one of our powerhouse series, be an event sponsor at TechNite, RBTC’s new AI Conference, or take a holistic approach through an annual RBTC Gold, Platinum or Titanium Partnership. We have tons of sponsorship options to suit your interests and needs.
The way we see it, a rising tide lifts all ships. When you win, we win. That’s why we work to provide sponsors with solid opportunities for top-tier visibility and engagement in our communities. You’re here because you have a passion for the power of tech. Let’s nurture it together.
