Hampton Roads economic development is increasingly being organized around enterprise "clusters."
If you're doing or planning something new, creative, innovative and need an environment to promote it, or the means by which to collaborate and work with local universities, schools, entrepreneurs, businesses and non-profits, Hampton Roads Innovations (HRI) is for you.
Launched in September 2011 with leading regional players to promote economic development and innovation, HRI doesn't re-create the good ground work and vision laid by others like the Hampton Roads Partnership many years ago. We work with anybody interested in innovation by providing a rich collaborative-social platform to accelerate initiatives started by you. Join us either as an individual, a business or a group. It's FREE.
