The Next Authentic Interview: Announcement
We are combining November and December’s to one full interview at the beginning of December.
This month we welcome Bryan Bostic, Executive Director, Startup Virginia with a rich career of CEO roles.
Bryan is a serial entrepreneur, including selling his first venture, 2B Technology, Ticketmaster in 2000. He later acquired Smartbox and sold the company to Sirva Worldwide. He continues as an active investor, directly involved with over 20 companies.
Startup Virginia is a not-for-profit organization that has been created to help and support the high-growth startups of Virginia. Startup Virginia is harnessing all of the disjointed entrepreneurial variables within our ecosystem, and gathering them into one central innovation hub to commit to the growth of the startups who live here.
Registrations have already come in for December’s Authentic Interview. We expect to sell out again. You can register now here.
Grow Value Through a Sponsorship
Be a part of the growing high caliber event by becoming a sponsor. The Authentic Interview is becoming the premier Monday event in Central Virginia. Your business can be a part of our growing success if your business:

- Has a reputation as a leadership-focused business
- Intends to partner long-term with the Authentic Interview events
- Wants to add value to the event experience
We have a little over 100 photos from our last Authentic Interview. You can view them here!
Advanced registration reserves your seat and covers your lunch.
The Authentic Interview is like no other in the Richmond Metro Business community.
Each month is unique as we interview an accomplished business leader where you will hear personal stories of experiences and learning that has shaped their leadership.
You will walk away with actionable ideas, tips, or tools that can be immediately implemented. Bring a friend so you can learn and experience this unique event together. And, at the same time, you enjoy a terrific lunch from Tavern 19.
