Andy Page and Allison Garrett, Co-founders, Radify Labs
What does a typical day look like for you?
A typical day involves either walking or biking in, grabbing some coffee, and getting started going through my inbox. Since our program is run completely online, a lot of my day is spent talking to students via Google Hangouts. I also dedicate time to meetings with mentors and my co-founder.
What inspired you to start your company?
The initial spark happened while I was working for a nonprofit that taught in-person technical education bootcamps in Charlottesville, VA. Over 800 people applied to a summer immersive program there with just 60 spots, and after sending 700+ rejections I realized there is a huge demand and need for this type of programming for college students.
What’s your favorite thing about Virginia?
Favorite thing about Virginia would definitely have to be the outdoors. In Richmond I love spending time on the Capital Trail and Belle Isle and outside of Richmond I like driving up to the Blue Ridge Mountains and taking a hike. Old Rag is definitely a favorite!
