Master Video Today!

Does This Sound Familiar?

You see how video can turn strangers into customers, but you don’t know where to start with equipment, how to create a compelling message on camera, what to wear.


You’ve spent countless hours watching other people’s YouTube videos, and you’re really frustrated trying to make your home studio look better, connect with an audience, AND be good on camera.


You are creating videos, but it feels like you’re speaking to no one, and you’re not sure how to grow and engage your viewers.


Your job is now remote, and you must interact with clients and build relationships through video calls. Being on camera is not your main focus, and yet, being successful at it is critical right now.

HRIC Launches Corporate Pillars Program with Collaborating Regional Organizations

April 2019

The Hampton Roads Innovation Collaborative (HRIC) has launched Corporate Pillars, a program designed to emulate some of the conditions that contributed to the success of Silicon Valley tech firms.

Dan Bell, president of HRIC stated “The goals of the Corporate Pillar program are twofold: to provide an environment where large regional organization’s IT leaders can become aware of smaller/growth technology firms within the region, and also to provide feedback on their product, services, strategies and more, contributing toward their growth.”

The approach taken by HRIC was to solicit involvement from senior IT personnel in large business, government and academia.  To date, the following organizations have opted to participate: Cox, PRA, City of Virginia Beach, City of Chesapeake, Clark Nexsen, Huntington Ingalls Inc. Technical Solutions Division, Newport News Shipbuilding, ODU Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Port of Virginia, Sentara, Tech Center Research Park and Towne Bank.

Beginning with the first meeting in April of 2019 and continuing every 90 days, HRIC organizes a 3-hour Corporate Pillars meeting, inviting 6 growth firms in to present for 20 minutes each (with Q&A) on their business.  These are private sessions, closed to the public and invitation only from HRIC.  Meeting locations are intended to take place on both the southside and peninsula.

The Foundry

What is the Bay Innovation Foundry?  Simply put, it is a new way of addressing and perhaps solving the on-going questions:

  1. How does the workforce get experience while in school? Traditional internships can work, but those programs are often loosely managed and disorganized, netting less than favorable results.  Internships are also very limited in scope and scale, so only a small number of student to company placements result.
  1. Students are often challenged to get out in the job market as fast as they can, because they need the experience. However, this translates to less than ideal skills to hire.
  1. Companies in Hampton Roads need to be able to leverage workforce both out of school as well as exiting military so that their growth can remain in Hampton Roads.
  1. Students need to come to companies with state-of-the art knowledge AND experience in its applications.
