Create WV is much more than an annual conference. It's a community of innovative professionals with diverse experience in areas such as technology, research, planning, marketing, sustainability, design, education, training and entrepreneurship. Below are some key ways your organization or community can tap this creative network to make things happen in your neck of the woods.
INNOVATION TECHNICAL SUPPORT
Many organizations and communities have a history littered with good ideas and good intentions. Why didn't they become reality or have the impact they were expected to have?
Often it comes down to key technical skills: planning, research, program and project management, and financial savvy.
Create WV taps a network of proven consultants and project managers from within West Virginia and outside the state to deliver on innovative visions.
How can we help you make your creative vision a reality?

The result? Compelling strategic possibilities. Exciting community plans that rally support. Organizational roadmaps for growth. And of course, fired up people ready to work toward an exciting vision!
Innovation Workshops typically require a full day commitment but yield a faster step forward in your strategic planning.
Create WV has delivered dozens of half- and full-day Innovation Summits for communities, institutions and individuals to explore how technology, diversity, quality of place, education and entrepreneurship can positively impact growth.
The result? Hundreds of West Virginians with a better understanding of what it takes to spark, develop and implement innovative visions and ideas to build a more diverse, entrepreneurial economy and culture.
Innovation Summits are a low-cost, high-impact way to get the innovation and creative community conversation started. Typically they are sponsored by local economic and community leaders and volunteers and fit well within existing leadership training initiatives.
