SyncRVA is a new collaboration of Richmond's technology based groups and associations. With so much talent and outlets for our technical workforce to network, learn and collaborate it was time to "sync" our members and participants in-person and virutally.
On June 19th, SyncRVA, sponsored by Peak 10, will bring together - for the first time - the entire tech community. There will be an introduction of all participating groups, hear from Dan Costa, Editor of PCMag.com and network with other technologists from all facets of the Richmond's technology community. In addition, a new website dedicated to promoting the various groups, their missions, contact information and a community calendar will be unveiled.
It's time to "Sync" Up!
