The Great American Eclipse Road Trip

Encorepreneur is a community whose goal is to help its members make their next business & personal accomplishments as successful, full of purpose and fun as they have been in the past. 
Encorepreneurs have never been content to go with the flow or to take the easiest path. They are leaders, learners, explorers, creators and builders. Some are approaching the end of their careers & others are just finishing up one "gig" and looking for another. 

Today, they are ready for an encore performance. That's why we call them "encorepreneurs."  

We hope you will join us at an upcoming breakfast.

    “Organizations are all about data, until they are not just about data!

    Data, like cash, is an indispensable part of a company’s operations. Like cash, some companies use it better than others, and better use leads to better results. Companies, and industries, are being transformed by access to data.  

    Our February speaker has spent more than 30 years helping companies and organizations bring clarity, function and efficiency to their collection and use of data, and he will share what he has learned about how you can use it to transform and innovate. 

    Dr. Peter Aiken is a VCU professor, entrepreneur, researcher and author of more than 10 books on data management. He has assisted more than 150 organizations in 30 countries, and is an accomplished speaker. Since 1999, he has hosted the longest running webinar series dedicated to data management.

    In 1999, he founded Data Blueprint Inc, a consulting firm that helps organizations leverage data for profit, improvement, competitive advantage and operational efficiency. He is a past President of the International Data Management Association and Associate Director of the MIT International Society of Chief Data Officers.  


    The Richmond Police Training Academy

    While we are committed to seeing new locations for most of our breakfasts, we sometimes revisit venues that have a impact beyond just the location. The Richmond Police Academy is one of those venues and we are returning to it 23 months after our first visit. In March of 2016, we visited the Academy and even took some of our attendees far outside their comfort zones and visited the MILO "use of force simulator" at the facility. 

    Situated on the campus of Virginia Union University, the Richmond Police Training Academy provides high quality training for police recruits, veteran sworn personnel, and civilian employees, Instruction offered by Academy staff includes basic recruit training, firearms training, and computer training. The facility also has a museum that tells the story of the Richmond Police.

    Founder and President of 

    Our March speaker will tell us about the new way to spend time in the outdoors. Enthusiasts looking for access to undeveloped private property can use the Outdoor Access website and an app developed by a company co-founded by local entrepreneur, Jamie Christensen. 

    Using experience gained while growing a business focused on mapping land, Jaime and partners have launched Outdoor Access to allow hunters, fishermen, hikers, drone flyers, campers and more to reserve the use of land for a day or for a longer term. Land owners register at no charge, and users pay fees averaging around $25 per day.

"We are learning where the gold lies. Our prospecting suggests that it lies in engaging with others, laughing, learning, listening, accepting, appreciating, loving."
