Tech-oriented and data-savvy folks soon will have the chance to dive deep into a new Charlottesville portal that will disclose public information about policing, property, traffic, parks, demographics and the environment.
The launch of the city’s open data portal later this summer is part of an initiative that started last year to make the city government more transparent and encourage the growth of the city’s tech industry.
“This is a really cool project,” Mayor Mike Signer said moments before the council unanimously adopted an official open data policy last month. “This will put us at the leading edge of governments doing this kind of thing.”

A new initiative is promoting candy, furniture and software under a single brand: Made in Charlottesville.
The program, sponsored by the city’s Office of Economic Development, aims to increase the visibility of businesses that design or manufacture products within the city limits.
“There are many businesses in Charlottesville that are really well known nationally — even internationally — that no one knows about here,” said Jason Ness, business development manager for the city.
Ness cited as examples Blanc Creatives, whose hand-forged cookware won the top prize in Garden & Gun magazine’s Made in the South Awards for 2015; and Rockbridge Guitar, which makes instruments for some of the world’s premier rock and folk musicians.
Although these two businesses have a limited customer base in Charlottesville, Ness said they benefit the community by creating jobs and inspiring civic pride “... in knowing that these things were manufactured or made here.”

When a company decides to seek a strategic development or commercial partner for an asset, the first inclination is often to identify the likely buyers and begin conversations about a potential deal. However, entering a deal process without first having a full understanding of the product’s advantages, disadvantages, and commercial potential reduces the odds of a successful deal outcome. Conducting a complete commercial assessment for an asset before beginning deal discussions allows a greater chance of getting a deal done at the best possible value. This is especially true for assets at later stages of development where the target product profile is well understood and the commercial assessment can have the greatest impact.
