The mission of The Collaboratory of Virginia (CVA) at UTurn is to create a place of collisions and community for nonprofits in order to build a more resilient and efficient nonprofit ecosystem. We value collaboration and the learning that happens when you allow experimentation in a laboratory-like setting.
Effective collisions rarely occur organically, but can be stimulated through proximity, programming, and shared services. The Collaboratory of Virginia at UTurn creates the space for all three. It can be thought of as a specialized coworking site, a nonprofit community center, a neutral site for programming and a key piece of the greater Richmond nonprofit ecosystem. When the nonprofit community thrives, the entire community thrives.
The Collaboratory of Virginia is a program of UTurn, a 501c3.
