    Dr. Peter AIKEN

    VCU Professor and Founder of DataBlueprint

    “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.

    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!)

    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.
