Working Towards a Vibrant Economy
The world’s economy is changing, and we want the Hampton Roads region of Virginia to excel in:
• creating great jobs
• helping businesses and entrepreneurs thrive
• diversifying our economy
Reinvent Hampton Roads is a community leadership initiative focused on generating high-paying, satisfying jobs to underpin a vibrant economy.
To get started we recruited some of our region’s brightest minds to analyze, explore and prioritize what will make this a region of great opportunities. This inspired new collaborative efforts in our region and led to ideas for game-changing activities.
Now in 2016 ReInvent Hampton Roads is becoming an independent organization focused on improving the region’s economic performance and profile.
