HYPE Richmond


To develop, engage, and empower young professionals.



HYPE-Richmond Inc aims to provide the young professionals (ages 21-40) of Richmond with professional, leadership, and networking opportunities that promote their growth and development within our community. HYPE-Richmond Inc will serve in a collaborative capacity that promotes these opportunities between local businesses and organizations, our members, and the surrounding Richmond area.


By 2020, HYPE-Richmond Inc will have established a strong base of members in our community that are actively participating in our programming throughout the year. Ultimately, our goal is to develop, engage and empower our members to become dedicated members of our community.


Over the next two years, HYPE-Richmond Inc will establish and maintain strong partnerships throughout the community. Partnerships will be developed with local employers to help retain their young professional employees in the Richmond area. Along with employers, HYPE-Richmond Inc will work to create partnerships with local colleges in an attempt to connect their graduating seniors with professional development opportunities. Finally, HYPE-Richmond Inc will further develop our relations with the Wayne County Area Chamber of Commerce, to create a path for growth and stability for our organization, while also providing our members with networking experiences.


HYPE-Richmond Inc will spend the next two years developing marketing and brand recognition throughout the community. Through multiple avenues, HYPE-Richmond Inc will become a well-recognized organization within the professional community of Richmond.
