The Greater Richmond Partnership (GRP) assisted in organizing and sponsoring the 12th Entrepreneurship Export Exchanges (E3) Conference, hosted at the University of Richmond on June 14th, 2019. GRP was proud to engage with the E3 conference in Richmond, as the GRP program Richmond Metro Exports Initiative (MREI) is currently making strides in the region. MREI is a nonprofit that assists central Virginian business with their exporting goals and educates on the benefits of exporting.
E3 is produced by Global Situation Room and focuses on business globalization strategies with insights from industry experts. E3 2019 engaged with the challenges of taking technology global, how to navigate global markets while maintaining security and how to innovate during transition. Speakers included Peter Fatelnig, the Minister Counselor for Digital Economic Policy of the EU delegation, Bloomberg’s Economic Policy Editor Sarah McGregor, MSNBC’s Kendis Gibson, Haley Jonathan Wachtel, Director of Communications for US Ambassador Nikki Haley, and Oxford Analytica CEO David K. Young.
A breakfast hosted by the Richmond Symphony preceded the conference. The Richmond Symphony was proud to share that the international Menuhin Competition — often referred to as “the Olympics of violin” — will be hosted by Richmond in 2020, and will bring talent and visitors from around the world to Richmond for an 11-day festival.
