The Right Place For Research
GOOD RUN RESEARCH AND RECREATION
Well, our hometown is - and we're admittedly a bit biased - jam packed with GOODness. So, of course we’re in on that action. Richmond has seen explosive growth spurred on by a hoppin’ craft brew & foodie scene, vibrant cultural attractions, and unmatched natural beauty - like class 4 rapids ripping right through our downtown. Richmond also has a varied, innovative business landscape filled with brilliant entrepreneurial ventures, new ideas, and quite the reputation for startups. With the flourishing small business space, art on every corner, and an influx of new residents, RVA has quietly become the cool kid on the playground right under our noses. Richmond is thriving, it’s hip, it’s happening.
But a city is only as strong as its people - and Richmond has some pretty GOOD people. Above the national average with regards to education and HHI, plus a vibrant, diverse population - no matter who you need to talk to for your research project, we can find them for you in Richmond.
