Economist Billy Kinsey of Virginia Commonwealth University presents the results of the survey

On November 20, 2007, the Charlottesville Business Innovation Council continued their series of tech town hall meetings at the Omni Hotel in downtown Charlottesville.  The highlight of the luncheon was the release of an economic study on the impact of high-tech companies on the local economy (.PDF).  The study was conducted by the Center for Public Policy at Virginia Commonwealth University and funded by the City of Charlottesville.

The presentation was followed by a panel discussion with local high-tech business executives who discussed the challenges of hiring and retaining technical employees in our area.
