There is a trend of Greenbound professionals descending on a burgeoning clean energy industry in Richmond. Being a new Richmond resident myself - as of summer 2018 - I wanted to connect my more established contacts in my network with other recent transplants to the Richmond area. In early November 2018, I arranged a happy hour to connect some new friends with some old friends. A few contacts were not available on short notice while others not only attended but they passed the invitation along to their networks resulting in a great turnout.
Connections were made, industry knowledge was shared, new relationships started, and the voice of the people was heard - Greenbound professionals want to get together more frequently to continue these conversations.
The professionals who inspired Greenbound RVA bring diverse experiences and backgrounds with them in their respective industries from entrepreneurs, lawyers, energy efficiency professionals, solar developers, advocacy professionals, legislative staffers, financial institutions, non-profits, and more. We are all brought together by a common mission - to leave this world just a little better than when we found it.
