RICHMOND GRID MAGAZINE
Sharing stories about everyday people who are inspired by a purpose beyond themselves, is the best thing we can do to show the heart and soul of a city. Like Richmond, VA. Located 90 miles due south of Washington, D.C., the small town feeling but industry power house of a city has more to its name than just Virginia Commonwealth University, the Richmond Squirrels, and Phillip Morris. Inside the rustic, 100-year-old brick warehouses are bustling craft breweries offering the latest hoppy brew in the region. Down on the riverfront past the highway lies the James River, a busy river teeming with paddle-boarders, rafters, swimmers, campers and after-work crowds. My challenge: Featuring Richmond, VA at its best — from startup owners to creators to civic leaders – and all the the talented people, small businesses, and community organizations along the way.
