A New America: Richmond

Richmond, Virginia / April 16, 2014

On April 16th, The Atlantic and National Journal hosted the third in a series of town hall events on how Millennials are engaging in entrepreneurship and service.

Millennials are on track to be the most educated, the most connected, and the most wired generation, with a bent for entrepreneurship and service. Evidence shows that Millennials may represent the tipping point generation in America, whose preferences and priorities are setting the direction for public and private life over the decades ahead. They are, by far, the most diverse generation in American history, with non-whites comprising about 40 percent. Richmond, VA has become a hub for Millennials and millennial entrepreneurs; the city's open and collaborative business climate has turned it into a unique entrepreneurship incubator. In this event, government officials, entrepreneurs, and Millennials themselves will shared insights on how this influential generation is choosing to pursue impactful careers.
