The Legal Side of Your Business + Richmond's Infrastructure for Inventors

Our February meeting will feature two presentations:

    • Carter Scott, attorney with DurretteCrump, will discuss issues critical to the operation of your business, including: formation, financing and development of your business entity. Carter represents small and mid-range businesses and their owners on a broad range of corporate, business and real estate matters. Learn more about Carter at:
    • Mark Deutsch, seasoned entrepreneur, marketing expert, and founding Board member of VINE, will address the many infrastructure resources available to inventors (and entrepreneurs in general) in the Richmond area. Learn more about Mark at:


Virginia Innovators Network is a not for profit, educational organization. We exist to support innovative Virginians who are pursuing bringing their unique products and services to market. There is NO CHARGE to attend VINE monthly meetings -- Thank you to our generous sponsors who make the pizza, water, & beer possible.

Our primary approach to providing this support is through membership meetings. These meetings serve two purposes: networking and education. Aspiring entrepreneurs have the ability to meet inventors and entrepreneurs who have successfully launched unique goods and services or professionals with subject matter expertise that is pertinent to launching of these products and services. The speakers at the meetings have direct expertise in one or more of the areas related to bringing ideas to market.

>>> For more details on upcoming programs and to register for VINE events, please visit<<<

In addition to the meetings, our website contains references and information to help the innovator research and make appropriate contacts with subject matter experts.

VINE generally meets on the 4th Monday of every month. Our meetings start with general networking and dinner (pizza) at 5:30, followed by a brief VINE business meeting from 6:00 to 6:15. Typically, our speakers will present from 6:15 to 7:30. Following the presentation, there is time allowed for individual questions and/or additional networking.

VINE attracts top regional and national speakers who provide meaningful content to our meeting attendees.

VINE Members will have the opportunity at each meeting to share news about their invention/product if desired and if appropriate. Members will also have the opportunity at each meeting to give a 45 second (MAX) “elevator speech” to get feedback (feedback to be given after speaker).
