CIE Partners is an independent consulting practice promoting tech-based economic development and assisting entrepreneurs, investors, small businesses, nonprofit organizations, and government entities across Central, Southern and Southwest Virginia. We began in 2006 as the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship with the mission of assisting inventors and entrepreneurs. Building on that success, we have added staff, expanded our offerings and changed our name to CIE Partners to reflect our expanded capabilities.
For entrepreneurs and their communities to thrive, we support the key elements of tech-based economic development and the growth of innovation economies that include the expansion of research, knowledge transfer to the marketplace, healthy entrepreneurial ecosystems, and the building of a technically skilled workforce.
A distinguishing feature of CIE Partners is that we not only provide advice and consultation; we roll up our sleeves and work side-by side with our clients to actively advance their interests. We tailor our expertise to meet different client needs as we assist in designing and carrying out feasibility, financing, and follow-through activities.
Work with a guide you can trust. That’s CIE Partners.
