Collabor804 is an affordable rental studio that will provide local artists with an open environment to create, choreograph, communicate and collaborate! Richmond is full of artists from the visual to the performing and it’s not always easy to find a space to practice or meet up with others to work on individual or group projects. Collabor804 gives aspiring instructors, from dance to yoga to martial arts, a studio where they could practice or give private lessons in a mirrored room with a stereo system. It would also offer quiet, well lit areas with light supplies for graphic designers, painters, or other visual artists and Wifi is included in the rental price. In exchange for a small membership fee, artists in Richmond could come utilize the space and would just need to reserve their spot an hour before their desired time.  There will also be rates for drop-ins. Since the goal of Collabor804 is to create fusion amongst RVA artists, once a month the studio will host open houses where members can showcase and share their creations while also providing support & feedback for others.

For business owners who love customers, but hate Yelp, Speakeasy is a mobile application that provides real-time customer feedback and benchmark analytics. Speakeasy resolves problems privately, but pushes glowing reviews to social media. Typically, businesses get feedback from the extremes: their biggest fans or customers with an ax to grind. The majority of customers keep their opinions to themselves and simply vote with their wallets. Speakeasy helps businesses reach out and get this critical feedback with a  simple survey, powerful analytics, and great design.

Invite your customers to leave feedback at Quickly learn what your customers want more of — and what they want you to get rid of — but are too polite to say

For the last two months we’ve proven this concept works and that business find the platform valuable. We’ve collected data at four RVA businesses and received  feedback from over 100 customers. Our target customers are the bricks and mortar Main Street businesses that give each city its unique character, but don’t have the resources that national franchises devote to customer research.

Come to and check out screenshots of the product we are building, or watch a fun, short video highlighting Speakeasy in action.
