Blackbault is developing a network of developers that will provide “community development services,” including the self-development network.
The developer group, which also includes Blueberry and Quicken Loans, is also building a mobile app to help people develop a website or app.
“The purpose of our self development network is to provide opportunities for self-employment and business development for Blackbaux residents,” Blackbaures website says.
The developers will be based in Blacksburg and Blacksburg Metro area, with more to come.
The app will be open to developers and developers will pay a $25,000 fee.
Blackbax developers, who are self-employed, will also receive $500 per year to support their efforts.
The group plans to launch a mobile application in March.
