What a Launch!

An estimated 300 people attended our Launch celebration! The Launchpad was filled with supporters on a beautiful evening.  A great time was had by all in attendance!

Here are some more highlights…

  • There were visitors from Northern VA, Franklin, Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Hampton and of course, York County, James City County and Williamsburg
    • We even had visitors from Canada!
  • From elected officials to investors and budding entrepreneurs in attendance, our Launch proved that NOW is the best time to start your business
  • The Launchpad was filled with the winning photos from the James City County photo contest, flower arrangements from the Williamsburg Garden Club and glass sculptures from Virginia Glass Guild
    • Luckily nothing was broken!
  • Senator Mark Warner showed his support as we heard from Regional Director, Drew Lumpkin
  • Senator Tommy Norment delivered our key note
  • In typical Paul’s Deli fashion, they provided the best food, drinks and desserts imaginable
  • Our generous sponsors funded the entire evening including all of the food and drink that everyone raved about!
  • We may have sang the best version of “Happy Birthday” to Williamsburg’s Economic Development Director Michele DeWitt that she’s ever heard. We were certainly the biggest and loudest ever…

Now the real work begins!
