"Startup Virginia has helped Trilogy Mentors grow as a company, but almost more importantly, it has helped myself grow as a Founder/CEO. Being able to connect with mentors, who have been there and done it, is incredibly valuable. Whether it is looking for someone to help me put together a marketing strategy, or looking for advice on how to deal with a team conflict, Startup VA has been able to connect me to a mentor that has been in my shoes and is willing to share their experience."

— John Fallia, Trilogy Mentors

"Startup Virginia has opened up networks throughout the rest of the city, and brought attention to our company to help us start to "earn a seat at the table" so to speak; it's giving us the chance to be part of something bigger than just our own company story here in Richmond, while also connecting us with people who have contributed directly to our company success."

— Joe Belsterling, MajorClarity

"Startup Virginia has unlocked access to tons of mentors and connections that have helped us grow quickly."

"Seasonal Roots had many false starts finding seed investing until meeting up with the good folks at Startup Virginia. The team and their mentors are truly selfless in helping companies get off the ground. Richmond doesn't yet know the gem that is forming within and how it will transform the city."

— Duane Slyder, Seasonal Roots

"Startup Virginia has been a game changer for Serving Up Change. Everyone involved in the organization has one goal in mind, and that is helping all of our startups succeed, point blank! Through Startup Virginia I have gained access to a network of experienced professionals that would have been difficult for me to reach on my own. I have logged hours and hours of one-on-one mentoring sessions on a range of topics, and through this network I was also able to quickly identify our first sales hire. In addition to the amazing Startup Virginia leadership and mentors, networking and learning from other founders has also been extremely helpful. I’m truly thankful for the opportunity to be a member and super excited about moving into the new 1717 Innovation Center!"

— Johnathan Mayo, Co-founder, Serving Up Change
