Welcome to Brunswick County

Rise and Shine April 2022

 On April 6th, the Brunswick County Department of Economic Development and the Brunswick County IDA partnered with the RISE Collaborative and the Longwood Small Business Development Center to host a Rise and Shine event.  Bar 9 on South Hicks Street hosted the event and provided a delicious breakfast.  Rise & Shine is a twice-a-month meetup for entrepreneurs, makers, and innovators in Southern Virginia.  
A large group of people came to hear about the highs and lows of entrepreneurship, ask questions from special guests, and network with other entrepreneurs.  Mrs. Alfreda Reynolds led the group in introductions and a small group exercise that allowed participants to learn from each other and make connections.  We were delighted to be joined by Mrs. Regina Williams and her Brunswick High School Future Business Leaders of America students. The students shared their ideas for starting their own businesses and truly they are a dynamic and focused group.  It will be exciting to see where their dreams take them!
