Make it real.

When knowledge, talent and passion work in perfect harmony, that’s true art. Victor Haskins first discovered VCU in the ninth grade when he attended the university’s Festival of the Winds and Percussion. Even then, his musical interests were passionate and diverse. So when it came time to choose a college, he chose VCU and joined an artistic community that encourages him to develop his wide-ranging musical talents, from classical to jazz. VCU is where his professors, also performing musicians, mentor and challenge him to reach his goal. It’s where he taps into the local scene to perform. And where he is turning his passion into a profession.

The Brighter Side

o

| BY JACK COOKSEY

n my best day, I am an unabashed optimist, but most of the time I scrutinize the world with a healthy mix of realism and cynicism. You know the saying about things that seem too good to be true, or as the cosmologist Carl Sagan wrote, how “extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.” Remember March 1989? That’s when electrochemists Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann claimed, following lab experiments, to have generated energy through “cold fusion” — a nuclear reaction produced at room temperature. Their announcement thrust them into the white-hot media spotlight. But it soon grew unbearably brighter and hotter when other scientists couldn’t replicate the cold-fusion results. There’s no doubt those two men would have been hailed as heroes if the innovation they promised had proven true; the everyday implications of cold fusion would have changed the world. However, real innovation is not always as dramatic as the fantasy of cold fusion. Engineers, scientists and tinkerers often improve our lives in modest increments and without much fanfare. The cover story of our annual Welcome Inc. edition (“Applied Science,” Page 20) shines a little light on local researchers and inventors whose innovations offer practical, sometimes critical, solutions for some of life’s problems. These aren’t pipe dreams, either — they are already in the marketplace or on the way. Other features in this edition focus on the emergence of new approaches in our region’s business culture and services. The feature “Beyond Button Down” (Page 18) looks at how younger entrepreneurs are exploring new channels to build their business acumen and their customer base. Meanwhile, our “Locally Grown” department (Page 13) offers some smartphone applications that are either developed in the Richmond region or tailored specifically to its residents. As the U.S. economy continues to wrestle with discouraging unemployment numbers, it should be a ripe time for invention (and reinvention). A conscientious, collective push for targeted research and development could remedy some of our current woes — unemployment, aging infrastructure, environmental stresses and much more. The Richmond region may be up to the task. We have a businessfriendly state government; a handful of Fortune 1000 companies; a wellspring of creativity, medical expertise and technology research at VCU; and a healthy population of young, well-prepared minds. It's a formula that earned our region the distinction as being one of “10 Underrated Hotbeds of American Innovation” earlier this year in Fast Company magazine. Is it unrealistic to expect that our business landscape could grow into a larger center for innovation and entrepreneurship? No, not in the least. In fact, it’s worthy of a little optimism.

CONTRIBUTORS Rich Griset Freelancer Rich Griset pulled triple duty for this year’s Welcome Inc., delivering the cover feature “Applied Science” on Page 24, another story about corporate relocation, and the “Locally Grown” gallery of Richmond-based smartphone apps on Page 13. “Smartphones are wonderful devices,” Griset says. “But as Jerry Seinfeld said, it sure does ruin a good argument. No one spends 20 minutes fighting over whether Robert Downey Jr. or Tom Hulce starred in Amadeus anymore.”

Isaac Harrell To shoot portraits of local innovators, staff photographer Isaac Harrell applied some ingenuity of his own. To create the studio backdrops behind his subjects, Harrell fired a flash attachment through the open body of an old film camera to project a transparent image through the lens. Meanwhile, his trusty digital camera captured the subjects and backdrops in the images that begin on Page 24.

Locally Grown

A handful of Web and phone applications that help you get a handle on the region | BY RICH GRISET

Whether you’ve just touched down in RVA or you already have a foothold in local commerce and culture, it never hurts to have some key connections at your fingertips. These mobile apps come in handy with everything from your next house hunt to flight schedules at RIC.

snagajob

Snagajob For Employers – A few taps of the screen is all it takes to find job candidates with this app from employment website Snagajob. The locally based company unveiled this app last year, giving employers an easy way to evaluate and select applicants for hourly positions. Users can also call or email candidates directly using the app.

Created by Hardywood Park Craft Brewery’s co-founder Eric McKay, this app helps the layperson successfully pair food and beer. In addition to acting as a portable beer sommelier, the app lists full descriptions of more than 4,000 beers and 400 breweries. And if you’re having trouble finding your favorite beer nearby, the GPS Beer Finder feature allows users to locate retailers and restaurants that carry it.

Had a little too much fun pairing beer and food? Shockoe. com has created an app for the free 2BNB bus. Using GPS tracking devices, patrons can see where the buses are located in real time, where 2BNB routes are, wait times and information about sponsored businesses and restaurants.

Have a lunchtime hankering for the vegan delights of Rooster Cart but can’t remember where it’s located? This app from local Award Web Services has you covered, detailing locations, event listings and testimonials for the city’s favorite mobile eateries.

Looking for a new location to expand or move your business can be something of a hat trick, but with this app, the region’s real estate offerings will be a little easier to hunt down. The app gives users up-to-date information on all available MLS and home listings in the greater Richmond area. It features prices, taxes, maps, pictures, square footage and more, and listings can be searched by city name, ZIP code or using GPS.

Last-minute flights are no one’s cup of tea, but the Richmond Flight Schedules app can help travelers navigate those 11th-hour ticket purchases. Users can search flight schedules to and from Richmond International Airport, and tickets can be purchased using the app’s FareFinder option, powered by Booking Buddy.com.

If so, you may have obstructive sleep apnea-which is where the airway becomes completely blocked and breathing stops. The brain realizes that there is a lack of oxygen and that’s when you wake yourself up and gasp for air. When left untreated it can increase the risk of heart attack, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes and even death. As a dentist, Dr. Faryl Hart may be able to help your snoring/sleep apnea with a dental device (not a C-Pap machine). The one she uses and recommends is the SomnoDent device. The SomnoDent device has changed Dr. Hart from a severe sleep apnic patient to one with normal sleep patterns!

Casual, collaborative and tech-savvy, a new generation of business owners embodies the concept of “co-opetition”

t

he display floor at Ledbury shirt company, a cavernous 19th-century former warehouse somehow made homey by a liberal scattering of rich rugs across painted floors, provides just the right atmosphere for the after-work confab of a cabal of young Richmond entrepreneurs. Sprawled on a low-slung leather couch in the retro-chic storefront on 14th Street near Shockoe Slip, the two Pauls — Ledbury co-founders Paul Trible and Paul Watson — are swapping casual tales of small-business triumphs and trials with a select but trusted group of gathered peers. With the Pauls tonight are Michael Bor, Aaron Montgomery and Will Boland, cofounders of the fast-growing used-car consignment phenom CarLotz, and Eric McKay and Patrick Murtaugh, co-founders of Hardywood Park Craft Brewery. The latter pair’s star is rising both within the city’s beer-nerd culture as well as among the state’s political set after Gov. Bob McDonnell visited Hardywood’s Scott’s Addition facility in May to sign a new law allowing breweries to sell and serve their own beer on site.

The three vastly different companies — Hardywood, CarLotz and Ledbury — share similarities by marketing through social media and meeting the immediacy demanded by the "Internet generation."

It’s a casual meeting over pizzas and beer (Hardywood, of course), a monthly gathering that allows a mix of leisure with shop talk. The group started getting together regularly earlier this year after finding common ground through their shared accountant at the Glen Allen firm Keiter. “I think he saw we were all in similar stages of startup and growth, and he got us together,” says Bor of the welcome introduction. But it was likely something more that led their accountant to see a common thread among the three. Despite dealing in very different products — tailored men’s shirts, craft beer and used cars — all three represent the same trend in Richmond business: taking a relatively common commercial concept and turning it on its ear, often through the use of social media or (despite being a bricks-and-mortar business) by capitalizing on ideas and consumer values born on the Internet. “The custom shirt [concept] is certainly nothing new,” says Mark Deutsch, director of Business Network International for Central Virginia and an expert and author on small-business sales and marketing, in regard to Ledbury. “But short-run shirting, that’s one business model that I really love — nobody knows what the heck that means.” What it’s meant to Ledbury is suc20

W E LC O M E

Beyond Button Down_we12.indd 20

cess. The marketing concept involves the storefront in Shockoe but relies equally on online sales and “pop-up” trunk sales all over. And it relies on customer input in a way that Deutsch finds thrilling in part because it wasn’t possible just a few years ago. “They put five [shirt] designs out on their Facebook page and you vote on your favorite line, and then they turn around and produce a ‘short run’ of the shirt that wins,” Deutsch explains, crediting Trible and Watson with mastering quick-turnaround, supply-chain retail in a unique way. Deutsch adds, “The social-media model is a lot of what I’m seeing in Richmond, and they’re a good example of that. They’re converging the online and offline [models].” Even Trible and Watson, dressed to the nines compared to their fellow could-be corporate titans gathered at Ledbury, have an unbuttoned feel to their button-down style, a casual chic emblematic of the new breed of business elite, according to Deutsch. There certainly aren’t any threepiece suits around at CarLotz, where

“no-pressure car sales” takes on a new meaning. The business capitalizes on an area of the used-car business — in-person brokering of direct owner-to-buyer resales — that previously had been almost virgin turf in terms of its conversion to a corporate business model. Sure, there were the newspaper classifieds, which gave way to Craigslist in more recent years, but these businesses were essentially advertising vehicles, rather than serving as brokers for vehicle sales. Again, the model owes some of its inspiration to the Internet generation, acknowledges Montgomery, the company’s chief operating officer. CarLotz lets customers list and display their cars on traditional car lots, collecting a flat fee — about $800 — in exchange for negotiating the transaction. “Our generation has always been kind of criticized [as] a microwave generation: ‘I want it all, and I want it now,’ ” Montgomery says, suggesting this oft-cited weakness is in fact a strength when it comes to identifying new market strategies, or even just new markets. “Maybe we see things that are [customer] pain points that didn’t seem like pain points to an older generation. “Part of what our business is do-

ing is saving someone the hassle of having to go through Craigslist or the classifieds and having to meet with someone and hoping they’re not scamming,” he says. “It’s because we saw a pain point that had obviously been there for a while, but the previous generation hadn’t seen it as such.” A sales clerk at Ledbury, Diana Mathews, runs a still-small startup business that resembles the model of her employer. Era Vintage leans heavily on a combination of social media and pop-up storefronts to market a line of gently used midcentury modern furniture and ephemera. “Ultimately, I want a physical storefront,” Mathews says, but until then she spends hours creating a virtual showroom — she used a professional site designer rather than relying on existing e-commerce options like Etsy. She talks to her customers and prospects through Facebook, adopting a casual tone that’s less sales pitch than event marketing. “Eventually I’d like the site to be an extension of the physical storefront,” Mathews says. “I thought it would be better to promote it as more of an experience so it doesn’t become just an Etsy shop. It’s its own thing.” That Mathews happens to be building her business under the nose of two successful social-marketing wizards is the by-product of a market that seems to foster entrepreneurs’ attraction to one another. That phenomenon is part of what makes this region unique — and successful as a small business incubator, says Deutsch. “There’s a palpable feeling in the air,” he says. “People really want to collaborate.” And from this collaborative Petri dish is born a new word: “co-opetition.” Says Deutsch, “It’s cooperation instead of competition. The younger set — not the people in their 20s or the people in their 50s — but those in between, in their 30s and 40s, they don’t buy into the competition. For them it’s much more of an abundance market. That’s what I think a lot of these creative, innovative markets are coming out of. This new set doesn’t buy into the old way of thinking.”

WellAWARE

r

As more baby boomers approach retirement and the U.S. population gets older, the demand for products catering to the elderly will soon be greater than ever before. To monitor the health of seniors while helping to maintain their relative autonomy, Glen Allen-based WellAWARE Systems has created a way for the elderly to benefit from some passive monitoring without intrusion on their personal space. Using a network of electronic sensors, the WellAWARE System allows elder-care providers to track their clients in an unobtrusive manner and can actually reduce the cost of health care. For instance, an elderly person who gets up multiple times in the middle of the night to use the toilet might be developing a urinary tract infection. By tracking this activity, caregivers can catch a health issue before it develops into a much larger problem that might require costly hospitalization. “This system helps to keep seniors well and in the most independent living setting possible, as long as possible,” says WellAWARE CEO Teresa DiMarco. “In monitoring these patterns, we can identify potential problems early.” WellAWARE sensors are distributed throughout a client’s living quarters. They can track data that include the amount of sleep a person gets, bathroom usage and how often they get out to socialize. The system has been implemented at a number of large elder-care facilities across the nation, including one locally. More than 2,400 seniors use WellAWARE today, and that number will almost double by the end of the year. By 2014, WellAWARE will have 8,000 units operational, DiMarco says.

ichmond has had its moments on the leading edge of medicine, science and technology — from Virginia’s first heart transplant to the first operational electric trolley system in the United States. That pioneering mojo is far from a thing of the past. As the following innovations prove, researchers and companies in the region are still generating ideas that promise to be gamechangers for the future.

Spectra Fiber At Honeywell’s plant in Colonial Heights, scientists are hard at work testing materials for what may become the next generation of combat helmets, using a substance they call Spectra fiber. This material is 15 times as strong as steel, and the Colonial Heights plant is the only place in the world that manufactures it, says Honeywell spokesperson Nina Krauss. The plant provides the raw materials to other companies, which mass produce the helmets, but Honeywell is working on 218 prototypes for the U.S. military. Honeywell is creating helmets with different

weights and durability capacities to show the military what is possible. With this material, they can create a lighter helmet that is as durable as the current one in use or one of the same weight that is more durable. The material “allows for really high performance in lightweight applications, where the performance is really the driver,” says James Thagard, global business manager for Honeywell’s advanced fibers and composites business. “We’re developing new materials so the Army can see what the future possibilities are.” The next round of combat helmets that could feature Spectra fiber would be produced in 2015.

Brad Grunden, the lead engineer for the Honeywell team that's developing lightweight, durable prototype helmets for the U.S. military. Grunden is holding a spool of the company's Spectra fiber material used in the helmets.

EViTAR Like most innovations, the EViTAR catheter began with a problem. Treating brain tumors with antibodies and toxins worked well in the Petri dish, but it was difficult to get those treatments to the brain tumor cells of live patients. The solution was to create a catheter — a tube that can be inserted in the body for a medical or surgical application — that could infuse these therapeutic treatments directly into the brain and spinal cord. Working in collaboration with engineers, surgeons and physicians from VCU, the University of Virginia and the University of Minnesota, VCU Medical Center’s Dr. William Broaddus helped create a catheter that could treat a number of ailments. “The catheter has been used for treatment of malignant brain stem tumors, and there are plans for it to be used for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease,” says Broaddus, adding that patients suffering from epilepsy and stroke could also be treated with the device. The catheter has been approved by the FDA and is currently being marketed by Florida-based NexGen Medical Systems Inc. as EViTAR. “I’m very pleased with the progress that we have made in terms of bringing it to actual use,” says Broaddus, a neurosurgeon. “We’ve got plenty of ideas on how to take this forward. We’re very excited.”

FASTCLOT

VCU anatomy professor and a developer of FASTCLOT, David Simpson

The police officer hobbles back to her cruiser and opens a first-aid kit. She pulls out a cylinder the size of a fat magic marker and lines it up with the gunshot wound in her abdomen. The officer takes a deep breath and pushes the plunger, injecting a cotton-candy-like substance from the cylinder into her wound. Within 10 to 15 seconds, the wound begins to clot, saving the officer’s life. Thanks to the research and development collaboration of Virginia Commonwealth University faculty — anatomy professor David Simpson and biomedical engineering professor Gary L. Bowlin — the preceding scenario might become a reality as soon as fall 2013. The invention is called FASTCLOT, a hemostatic bandage that uses salmon protein to induce rapid, large-scale blood clotting. “In all our animal testing and preclinical work, it’s done phenomenal things,” says Simpson, adding that he hopes the invention will be ap-

plicable in both surgical and trauma situations. FASTCLOT’s technology is being directed toward a variety of applications. For penetrating injuries like bullet wounds, there’s Tubeclot. The ANIMALCLOT sheet exclusively treats animals under veterinary care. For wounds sustained in combat, there’s WRAPCLOT, and to stop bleeding in an operating room setting, there’s SURGICLOT. The Fastclot technology is already on the market for pets as ANIMALCLOT. Because it can be administered in a safe, sterile setting, Surgiclot will be the product tested on humans first if everything goes according to plan. “It’s exciting because we’re seeing something we developed in the lab turn into a product that can help a lot of people,” Simpson says.

Developers of geese-deterring technology, VCU biomedical engineering professor Martin Lenhardt (right) and graduate student Tarun Sinha

Bird Deterrent Last year, the residents of Henrico County’s Canterbury Lake neighborhood had had enough — the geese had to go. Long fed up with the accumulation of geese excrement on their lawns, the neighborhood association voted to exterminate the birds, causing consternation among some residents and provoking protests. It was then that VCU graduate students Tarun Sinha and Ray Gargiulo adapted technology originally created for the U.S. Air Force to ward off bird strikes on planes. The prototype uses a CD player to create a low-frequency vibration in the ground that geese hate but humans can’t detect. “We can actually save geese from being killed,” says VCU’s Martin Lenhardt, who oversees the lab where the deterrent was developed and is in the process of releasing the product with his company Ceres Biotechnology. Lenhardt created the original technology, which has been patented but hasn’t been licensed to ward off bird strikes. In the meantime, Lenhardt says, there has been interest in adapting the technology for the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel to keep seagulls from causing accidents inside the tunnel.

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY

PROJECT: Amazon warehouse and distribution center Online mega-retailer Amazon is building a 1 million-square-foot fulfillment center at Meadowville Technology Park in eastern Chesterfield in time for the 2012 holiday season; the facility will complement a $50 million distribution center under construction in Dinwiddie County. Collectively, it’s the biggest jobcreating economic development project in Virginia since 2004. “We are certainly proud to add Amazon to our corporate family,” says Chesterfield County Economic Development Director Will Davis. “[It] is a tremendous announcement for Chesterfield County.”

Left to right: Amazon's decision to build a new distribution center in Chesterfield County was partly negotiated by A. Garrett Hart, assistant economic development director; James J.L. Stegmaier, county administrator; and E. Wilson Davis, economic development director.

HENRICO COUNTY PROJECT: Fareva

In late 2011, Luxembourg-based contract manufacturer Fareva purchased the former Pfizer plant on Darbytown Road in eastern Henrico, retaining all its employees and adding 90 new jobs. Pfizer had been planning to close the plant, which manufactures goods such as Advil, Chapstick and Robitussin. Fareva has taken over manufacturing of the Pfizer products at the site and will also perform contract manufacturing for other companies. “That plant was about to be closed, and instead of having 500 people that were put out on the street, we now have a new facility … [with] pretty significant potential going forward,” says Gary McLaren, executive director of the Henrico County Economic Development Authority.

With its acquistion of a former Pfizer plant, Fareva also added 90 jobs.

Origin of Our Congregation In early 1986, a small group of families had the vision to start a new Conservative congregation that was fully egalitarian, accepted children in all aspects of synagogue life, had a participatory culture, and was conveniently located in Richmond’s West End. From the beginning, the hallmark of our congregation was our sense of community, including interfaith families.

Our New Building We proudly celebrate our 25th anniversary with a move into a new facility. Anchored by our breathtaking custom built Ark with its distinctive leaded glass doors to the east and the unique folding glass wall that opens to our airy patio on the west wall, our worship space inspires and provides a warm and welcoming spiritual home. Our state of the art, WiFi enabled facility houses our contemporary sanctuary, administrative offices, and our nationally recognized Helen and Sam Kornblau Religious School. Recognized as a “Framework for Excellence School”—the first and only religious school in the Commonwealth to receive this status. Our facility also has a full meat and dairy kitchen that will enable a kosher caterer to create the life cycle celebration of your dreams or simply enhance a business meeting, adult educational program or other activity for which well-prepared food is an added treat.

hrissy Triano and her sister, Sarah Solomon, wanted to create a destination setting when they opened their boutique candy store, Sweet Spot, in West Broad Village. “There is a lot of competition for candy and sodas, and we needed help making our store stand out and be the kind of place that people will remember from the products, service and atmosphere,” says Triano. The two stay-at-home moms knew what they wanted. They just didn’t know how to breathe life into their dream until they met Kristi Lane, owner of Visible Proof, a company offering everything from graphic design and branding to interior architecture and interior design services. “We take a brand concept and turn it into something real,” says Lane.

The New BLUEPRINT

In this era of prolonged unemployment, career planning takes on different meanings and demands different strategies — both for job seekers and those who guide them | BY CHRIS DOVI

i

t took a couple of years, but the headlines finally caught up with the Irwin family when Jennie Irwin’s husband, Dave, got his walking papers from a local box-making factory. After two years of searching, Dave finally replaced his lost paycheck with a job in retail — at half his previous salary. “He took a huge pay cut to do what he’s doing now,” says Jennie Irwin, a stay-at-home mom who recently made the move toward re-entering the workforce, only to find herself among multitudes

fighting for fewer jobs with fewer hours. “I’ve been looking for about six months, and there’s just nothing,” says Irwin. “Even at Target they’re not hiring a lot of people. And it’s all part time.” This led Irwin back to J. Sargeant Reynolds, the Richmond community college where she’d received an associate’s degree more than five years earlier. Irwin is now one of hundreds of students at the school, and at higher-education institutions across the state, pursuing programs tailored to a vastly changed employment environment.

The Virginia Education Wizard is an online career-counseling tool developed by the state.

In Irwin’s case, she found her niche in the school’s teacher-preparation program (instituted in 2006, just before the economic downturn hit). Since then, the job market for teachers also has taken a hit, the result of cutbacks in state and local budgets. But Irwin feels confident that, with J. Sarge’s help, she’s found a fairly recession-proof field. “I really want to teach special education,” she says, relating her experience as the mother of two daughters with Asperger’s syndrome. Irwin praises the school for boosting its job-placement services. She also credits a state initiative that better aligns community-college offerings with those of four-year state institutions, making transfer to those schools a guarantee for those with good grades. Higher education has redoubled its efforts to answer student and employer needs for real-world career training, says Jeff Kraus, assistant vice chancellor of the Virginia Community College System. “I can tell you, from my dad’s generation, once you finished school, you finished school. You were able to put in 30 years and get a gold watch and a retirement,” says Kraus, marveling at challenges facing the

current generation. “Now we’re looking at a time when [there’s] something called lifelong learning. We’re at a point in time where that phrase actually has meaning. Community colleges are there to allow people to reset when their lives dic-

tate the need to do that.” Irwin's story is similar to those of millions hit by hit by unemployment and broader changes in the jobs likely to be available as the market recovers. Those four-year history or creativewriting degrees, once good enough to get an entry-level job, just don’t cut it in a market seeking hard skills. Kraus recounts a story from a recent national conference of college and university officials: “They were talking about a growing trend in bachelor’s [degree] holders who are using community colleges almost as a grad school — to get first the bachelor’s and then return to get something that puts them on the path to a career.” At J. Sargeant Reynolds, that trend accounts for a little more than 10 percent of the student population, according to Malcolm Holmes, director of communications and public affairs at the school. Holmes doesn’t necessarily see a new trend in the role of community colleges: “We’ve always been an institution that worked hard to meet the needs of the local workforce.” But he acknowledges some programs have seen a swelling of ranks. Nursing, always a huge program, has grown. And the school works with nursing students far more actively to place them at local medical facilities, a fact that Irwin says nearly drew her to follow that path rather than education. “You have to want to succeed,” Irwin says, “but I think they’ve done a great job [at] job placement and getting people into programs.” Four-year institutions are shifting their approach, too, says Daphne Rankin, an associate vice provost at Virginia Commonwealth University. The university has made an effort in the past few years not only to offer programs that cater to local industry — medical arts and engineering programs that work closely with corporate partners to build better employees — but the program Rankin oversees also aims to set students on a strategic path from the start. “We’re doing something we’ve never done with our first-year

46 W E L C O M E I N C .

students, by providing them at orientation with more than just a map of campus,” Rankin says. Now, the orientation process involves a genuine focus on creating a graduation plan rather than just a vague sense that four years from now (give or take), the student will walk a stage at the Siegel Center. “We want them to start thinking like a university student right away.” Another state effort to change student thinking is a Web-based tool called the Virginia Education Wizard (vawizard.org). The website functions as a metrics-driven online career counselor, guiding prospective students or job changers through questionnaires to help identify areas of personal aptitude, but also to show what fields actually have a job or two waiting when students graduate. Users are guided by Ginny, a pert, professionally dressed and perpetually chirpy avatar whose soothing voice helps in very small measure to relieve the worry of a constantly shifting job market. Kraus says his agency helped develop the tool and that it’s now used in a partnership among many state agencies. In spite of low demand in the job market for certain degree fields, there’s been little change in enrollment in majors like psychology or English. Psychology remains the biggest degree program at all state higher education institutions, with more than 2,000 psychology degrees awarded in 2011, according to state statistics. Other low-demand degree categories, such as English and history, still graduate thousands of students each year. In fact, state institutions produce fewer graduates in all categories of computer science — a field with rapidly expanding demand — than they do in history. Rankin sees proof that young people remain optimistic enough about their job prospects to pursue the topics that interest them most, regardless of the application. “People want to be educated,” she says, “because they see themselves having a brighter future if they have that education.”

Moving EXPERIENCES Veterans of corporate relocation share some do’s and don’ts | BY RICH GRISET

p

ulling up stakes for a job transfer or a company’s wholesale relocation can bring a mix of both excitement and anxiety, even for the prepared mind. Is it an adventure or a nightmare? Those new to the game may find themselves trying to figure it out on the fly, from landing in a comfortable neighborhood to ushering one’s children gingerly through the transition. For the uninitiated, here is some sage advice from folks who have weathered at least one move.

Ryan Bailey,

senior industrial designer, MeadWestvaco Get Out of the House: “The first summer I was here, I made an effort to get out every night of the weekend and try a new restaurant or a new bar. I’d go to the Byrd Theatre or the ballpark just to try something new. That definitely helped me get to know the area.”

w INC. Get to Know the Locals: “Through social networks, it was easy to find friends or friends of friends that lived here and ask them for suggestions on where to live or what to do. This friend of a friend took us under their wing and out to meet people. They showed us all the hidden gems of Richmond.”

Pat Foley,

president of distribution and marketing, US Life Companies at Genworth Financial Give Information: While discussing housing with friends and colleagues, “be willing to share what you’re looking for, what you like, and ask where they think is the best place for you to live. That way, you move into an area where you and your family are happy.” Get Input From Family Members: “The real thing for me is the overall family transition into a new area. The chances of it being smooth and successful are highly correlated to how everyone feels about the area and the neighborhood that you live in.” Have the Right Mindset: “Everyone in the family needs to treat a relocation as a new adventure and a new opportunity to explore somewhere that they’re not familiar with. I personally looked at it that way, and maybe that’s why I felt good about my [five] relocations.”

Karl Neddenien,

spokesperson, Dominion Virginia Power Take the Family for a Visit: “When visiting the new location, there should have been more than just the adults [taking part]. We should have brought our daughters with us the first time we went from southern Maryland to Connecticut. I think they would have picked up on some little things about the culture that adults don’t tend to notice. For instance, the way the young people dress in Connecticut is much different from that in southern Maryland, which is more rural. We didn’t notice 64

that until it was time to buy a whole new wardrobe again when we got to Connecticut. It also gives them more confidence about the move, and gets them involved in the process.” Avoid Culture Shock: “When moving to a new area, don’t assume the local cultures and behaviors will be the same. When we moved from southern Maryland to Connecticut, we didn’t realize that it would take a little bit longer to get to know your neighbors. It’s nothing personal; it’s just the local culture. When we moved to Richmond, we found it was probably the friendliest place we’ve ever lived.” Realize Kids Need to Adjust: “Be prepared for a very strong emotional response from kids. They’re leaving friends they’ve known their whole life, and it could be intimidating. They may appear, for no other reason, to be argumentative or upset. Just be patient. It’s not easy on them.”

Jim Doyle, general manager, Surrounded by woods right next to Stony Point Fashion Park, this beautiful gated community puts the excitement of some of the region’s most elegant restaurants and shops right at your doorstep.

Get Organized: “Know what you have, and try to figure out the volume of things that you’re going to be responsible for moving. Don’t be afraid to clean house. Only take what you really need.” Rent Before Buying: “When my wife and I were deciding on where to buy a home, we came up with a list of criteria, 12 or 14 different touch points. We actually put a spreadsheet together as we tried to figure out where in the city we wanted to live. It really helped us to figure out where to buy a home, and it helped us be more objective about our decision.”

SportsDominion

The business model is ingenious and even fun to watch — turn Monument Avenue into a giant hamster wheel for the annual 10K race. It could keep Richmond’s power grid going for months. And even better, Sports Backers’ existing tagline (“Powering an active RVA”) retains its marketing mojo, with only a little tweaking: “Powered by an active RVA.”

RUMORS

Rumors & Rice

Here’s a way to corner the hipster market in one fell swoop. Cheap PBR, half-price sushi night and secondhand clothes that went out of style (in the ’90s) and came back in vogue (a generation later). Throw in a hotel, and the party may never stop.

For the Love of Brew

What would happen if a ton of this chocolate retailer’s goods fell into the microbrewer’s kettle? A tasty mistake that satisfies the wildest dreams of chocolatecraving beer connoisseurs.
