The young professionals that I have met through this program are some of Richmond's finest. A big shout-out to Richard Wintsch for sending the participants to our studio and for the continuing relationship that has benefited my company in many ways.
The GRCC is packed with people who care about small business in RVA. They are a very helpful crowd that also likes to have fun. Caitlin Kilcoin organizes the HYPE (Helping Young Professionals Engage) program for the Chamber, which is another great program that creates fun "networking" events that don't feel like networking. Usually centered around a local business, HYPE events do more than simply put young professionals into a room together - they also drive awareness of local business up and create revenue for small businesses in Richmond, VA.
