RICHMOND, Va. (April 20, 2012) – Peak 10 Inc. today announced its new partnership with the the Richmond Technology Council (RichTech). Serving as a Catalyst Sponsor for RichTech, Peak 10 will concentrate on the promotion of Richmond’s vibrant technology community.
RichTech works with partners, like Peak 10, to ensure the continued growth of Central Virginia’s dynamic technology-based economy. The organization is dedicated to the development of an infrastructure that supports the growth of existing technology industries and identifies the Greater Richmond region as a location of choice for new and emerging technology companies.
“To successfully execute our mission, it is imperative that we have partners that understand the importance of engaging the community that helps drive our region’s business growth,” said Robby Demeria, Executive Director of RichTech. “Peak 10 is playing a critical role in supporting our high-growth technology sector, and through this new partnership with the Council, is showing its dedication to promoting our talented technology community.”
The first installment of the partnership with Peak 10 will come in the form of a new award, the People’s Choice, at the Seventeenth Annual Technology Awards Gala on May 9. The People’s Choice will be selected by Gala attendees via real-time mobile app voting as the overall technology community’s choice for Best in Show.
“Peak 10 is deeply committed to this region and is excited to be supporting the Greater Richmond Technology Council at a higher level as a Catalyst Sponsor and as a steward for technology,” said Mark Wensell, the vice president and general manager of Peak 10 Richmond. “We urge other members to also increase their investments to RichTech to expand its resources and scope for supporting and growing Richmond’s technology sector.”
Lastly, this year RichTech plans to host an inaugural event, Sync RVA, which is a collaboration of all technology centric groups and associations in Greater Richmond. The event will bring together Richmond’s entire technology community under one roof for the first time. Each participating organization will host a seminar by which attendees will choose one to partake followed by a plenary session to network and learn more about Richmond’s robust and talented technology workforce. As a continuing commitment to the tech community, Peak 10 has agreed to be the signature sponsor of SyncRVA.
“Richmond technology has much to celebrate and we’re thrilled to have Peak 10 stand with us,” Demeria concluded.
