2018 Innovation Series #1: 1717 Innovation Center
The HYPE Innovation Series
How do we stay innovative when it comes to workplace culture, building community relationships and keeping up with the continued growth of technology? Join us as we hear from some of Richmond’s corporations on how they encourage innovation amongst a generation filled with creative minds.
The 1717 Innovation Center, located in the heart of Richmond, is a hub for resources focused on supporting community organizations and entrepreneurs.
Imagined as an all-in-one experience design lab, conference venue, and event space, we invite multi-disciplinary experts to engage with community organizations and entrepreneurs to share innovative new ways to help them meet their mission.
Within the 1717 Innovation Center, Startup Virginia runs its incubator for high growth startups. At present, over 50 companies sub-lease space from Startup Virginia, and have access to programming and an over 100 person mentor network to help them grow their businesses.
