Knoxville has its inaugural “Innov865 Week” starting September 19. Just a little north east of here, there is something called the “Virginia Velocity Tour.” Over the same five-day period, the roadshow will stop in Roanoke, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Northern Virginia, and Charlottesville. Each stop will focus on a different industry sector such as biotechnology, health, energy and agriculture. A $25,000, equity-free prize will be awarded at each stop. For more information, click here.
