NFX is currently involved with several areas of community economic development
NuFocusedX LLC (NFX) is a Virginia 501c3 Non-Profit Corporation formed in 2020, that operates programs in Commercial Workforce and Economic Development, Housing, Planning and Environmental Affairs, Finance, Public Relations, and Community Services from the Historic Gainsboro District of Roanoke, VA. NFX is currently involved with several areas of community economic development. These include the introduction of internet-based systems to reach a broader audience for exposure of businesses and community initiatives, a fresh food location and incentives for community farming in a designated food desert, support for start-up businesses handling the virtual learning requirements of Roanoke City Public Schools, live entertainment and commerce on Henry St including the Historic Dumas Hotel, as well as other business assistance and social activities prior to and throughout the pandemic of COVID-19.
Since February 2013, NuFocus Group LLC (NFG), led by its owner and Chief Executive Officer Tommy Page, has provided a platform for many businesses operating out of the Roanoke MSA to be seen in the global marketplace. NFG operated Focused Radio (online radio station with its own app), The Focus Magazine (online digital magazine with hyperlinks to increase shopping) and NFETv (online web shows and original visual digital media content) that became conduits for businesses of Roanoke to increase their visibility beyond the parameters of local network television and other current media channels. This also provided a spark of new activity for business enterprise from the Historic Gainsboro area which was the hub of minority opportunity for prosperity in Southwest VA from the 1920’s up until the devastations of Urban Renewal of the 1960’s and current seat of the vision for a New Gainsboro Business Corridor.
