Congratulations to Richmond Young Writers!

And a big THANK YOU to all who voted for them in the Greater Richmond Chamber ‘s i.e.* inaugural startup competition. Lana wrote about this group and the competition in her May 30 post (see below). In case you missed it, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported in their Tuesday edition (Business section, 6/12/12) that Richmond Young Writers is among the 15 finalists. They are going for a $10,000 prize and six months of free space. A panel of veteran entrepreneurs will hear a presentation from each finalist who will describe their organization and business plan. Each finalist must also demonstrate that their start-up is located or will locate in the Richmond area and has been in business for less than a year. The Richmond Chamber will announce the winner on June 21 at the Richmond Center Stage downtown. Bravo Richmond Young Writers! We’re rootin’ for ya!
