Putting all the pieces together to start your own business is a lot of work. That’s why James City County established the Triangle Business & Innovation Center to offer the resources, support system, mentoring, and safe-haven you need to get your venture off the ground.





The Triangle Business & Innovation Center (TBIC) is located at 5300 Palmer Lane, Suite 2A (off of Ironbound Road and near New Town in James City County).
