What VDBA needs for this project:
1)    A theme!
2)    “Frame-worthy” poster design
3)    Promotional item ideas that fit with the theme
4)    Sample print advertisements that can be customized to local communities
5)    Breakfast invitation design
6)    Breakfast program (paper agenda) design

 2.) Copywriter Opportunity
The Virginia Department of Business Assistance (VDBA), created by the Virginia General Assembly in 1996, provides a one-stop-service for technical assistance related to business formation, access to capital, and workforce development. VDBA works with existing businesses as they grow their workforce and mentors entrepreneurs from ideas to launching their first business venture. 
 
VDBA is in need of a copywriter to review its current marketing material content and rework it to make it less of a “standard government issue” brochure and speak in a more appealing way to our target customers – the businesses of Virginia.
