Sponsorship Opportunities

The RBTC has a number of annual partnership and event sponsorship opportunities, including:

  • Tech & Toast Breakfasts: Tech & Toast events are held throughout the year and typically alternate between Blacksburg and Roanoke locations to encourage regional participation. Each event includes a speaker or panel and valuable networking with business and technology leaders from across the region.
  • TechNite Awards Dinner: TechNite is an annual celebration of the Roanoke – Blacksburg region’s technology community. It provides an opportunity to network with more than 400 leaders in business and innovation in one location. The evening is highlighted with an awards ceremony where leaders are recognized in categories such as STEM-H Educator, Regional Go-To-Geek, Regional Connector, Rising Star, Entrepreneur of the Year, Innovator of the Year, Regional Leadership, and Company of the Year. TechNite is held annually in late Spring at The Hotel Roanoke or the Inn at Virginia Tech.
  • Business Development Forum: RBTC members have questions about PR, business development strategy, developing new channels, lead management, and other related topics. Biz Dev forum was created to help members share lessons learned and best practices.
  • WoTech: An RBTC peer community providing support, development, and education through peer networks of women leaders and up-and-coming women leaders in technology companies.
