The Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) is the trade association representing the Northern Virginia technology community. As one of the nation's largest technology councils, NVTC serves companies from all sectors of the industry, from small businesses and startups to Fortune 100 technology companies, as well as service providers, academic institutions, and nonprofit organizations.

NVTC has worked for over 30 years in partnership with Virginia policymakers to advance a strong, innovative technology policy framework. We strongly advocate for policies and investments that drive competitiveness and economic strength, grow our tech workforce, and provide the infrastructure necessary to power Virginia’s technology and innovation ecosystem.

In this effort, we advocate for Virginia policymakers to support the following objectives and priorities:

COMPETITIVENESS AND ECONOMIC GROWTH

  • Enhancing Virginia's ability to attract companies that are seeking to expand, relocate, move corporate headquarters, or establish research operations
  • Supporting a comprehensive "Grow Your Own" strategy for new company formation to position Virginia as a leader in establishing innovative tech companies, as well as a top destination for researchers, early-stage investors, and other entrepreneurs and innovators
  • Ensuring Virginia maintains its status as a top state for business by minimizing taxes and regulation, preserving Virginia’s right to work status, and avoiding negative signals that drive private enterprise away from the Commonwealth

STEM EDUCATION AND WORKFORCE

  • Infuse the next generation into our region’s technology talent pipeline through robust STEM education and apprenticeships programs and by increasing the number of STEM certifications and degrees awarded statewide

INFRASTRUCTURE

  • Improving infrastructure, including transportation, energy and broadband, to support economic development and help Virginia companies compete
