C'ville: A Great Place to Live >>

Blueridge Mountains in CharlottesvilleAffectionately dubbed "C'ville" by its residents, Charlottesville is consistently proclaimed to be one of the most livable cities in the country. Located in the rolling foothills of the historic Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlottesville offers the ambience and friendliness of a small town with many of the cultural, educational, and professional advantages of a much larger metropolitan area.

NVCA logoThe National Venture Capital Association recently named Charlottesville the fastest growing venture capital ecosystem in the United States. Six of the nine top companies contributing to that growth trace their roots to UVA. See more at: https://news.virginia.edu/content/charlottesville-new-capital-venture-capital#sthash.Aaiquff4.dpuf
