(RVP) to help early-stage ventures transition into successful businesses. The RVIC will grow early-stage companies through advisory services, a service provider network and physical “incubator”/”accelerator” space. What drives us is not just seeking innovations and innovative companies, but also to innovate in our delivery of services to our client companies in all the areas we can. Innovation can serve as leverage points for our clients and the markets they compete in. We strive to seek out innovative research science, innovative engineering or technology, and innovative business practices that will combine to create fast growing high impact companies with our partners and service providers.

To grow their companies successfully, emerging technology companies need lawyers to secure their intellectual property, public relations experts to advise them on how to get media exposure and graphic designers to help them establish their corporate identity. To get their businesses off the ground, they may hire accountants, network specialists, web designers, recruiters and many others. In addition, some of them need access to enabling technology, laboratory or testing facilities.
