RVA’s entrepreneurs and small businesse owners are invited to an afternoon of superstar advice and connection making in one of Richmond’s most beautiful locations, the Boathouse at Rocketts Landing. Being an entrepreneur requires flexibility and creativity, but it also involves a healthy dose of strategy and long range planning. This event will provide practical guidance on both.
Confirmed keynote speakers include Ed Grier, dean of the VCU School of Business; Ting Xu, founder and president of Evergreen Enterprises; Shawn Boyer, founder and chair of snagajob; and Brian Callaghan, private investor and co-founder of Apex Systems. Additional sessions will offer insight on smart growth, locating capital, marketing, metrics and other topics of interest to RVA’s entrepreneurial community.
