We have hosted nearly 50 breakfasts and other programs since Encorepreneur! began, covering topics ranging from baseball to the teachings of Islam. Our speakers have included serial entrepreneurs, NY Times best selling authors, WWII and Viet Nam veterans, politicians, educators, baseball players, first responders, extreme hikers (from 3 different continents), and many other interesting people.

Here are summaries of some of our more recent programs.

    Experience the Richmond Police
    Training  Academy's


    Do you ever read stories about police officers's actions and think you know what he or she should have done?

    You're standing by a car's passnger door talking to a woman through the open window. Suddenly, she reaches into the glove compartment as the driver starts the car. Is she reaching for gum or for a gun?

    An obviously drunk elderly man is walking towards you with a paper bag in his hand and he doesn't stop when you ask, and then order, him to stop. Is the bottle in the bag a potentially deadly weapon, or can you easily disarm the stumbling man?

    After the Encorepreneur breakfast at the RIchmond Policve Training Academy on February 27th you can have a chance to find out.

    Captain Powers, the Director of Academy, will take a very limited group of encorepreneurs through a 1.5 hour course on the MILO Use of Force Range Simulator that is used to train officers to make life or death decisions.

    If you want to have this unique oportunity to see if you have what it takes to be an officer, please register below. (Here's a hint - it's not as easy at you think!)
