FEBRUARY 1, 2018

Starting a prosperous 2018

Just a few weeks ago, we kicked off 2017 with our Year in Review! If you have yet to watch the video or peruse the timeline poster, please do. There's a lot of impressive information about the Richmond Region's business community and last year's accomplishments.

In this edition of Wrap Session, we highlight our newest company announcements, a couple of blog posts and an opinion piece about the importance of smart grid energy infrastructure. Mergers and acquisitions seem to be the theme in this month's edition, with millions of dollars in play. I'm glad to see that our locally-based headquarters are leading the charge.

Finally, congratulations to the five winners of the Metro Richmond Exports Initiative pitch panel! Contestants were awarded $5,000 to start or grow their exporting business.
