Community & Promotional Partners
TechBUZZ Celebrates the Community of Innovation and Entrepreneurship

MAVA sends a big "shout out" to the terrific team of Community Partners and Promotional Partners who have joined with MAVA to ensure that the opportunity to attend and participate on stage at TechBUZZ reaches the whole, broad community of entrepreneurs, founders, innovators and company-builders in the Mid-Atlantic. 

MAVA's stage is created to celebrate the "best and brightest" of our extended ecosystem, and to connect great companies with all the resources they need to grow - from investment capital, to expert advisory support and, most of all, peer-to-peer connections.

With this in mind, MAVA embraces the opportunity to cross promote our programs with those of our community and promotional partners who share our passion for celebrating entrepreneurship and shining a spotlight on all the great ideas and innovations growing in the Mid-Atlantic.

Please join us in thanking our partners, and spend a few minutes getting to know them!
