For this project, RTS, in concert with its partner, CommonWeal, LLC identified and analyzed the network or serial entrepreneurs (Dealmakers) within the Richmond regional economy and then mapped the connections among these individuals and their associated companies within each major industry sector. The project was performed for the Virginia Biotechnology Research Partnership Authority to support its strategic vision to support and accelerate the development of the Richmond region’s innovation eco-system. The basis and driver for the overall approach employed for this analysis is a proprietary analytical tool– the CommonWeal DealMapper – that delivers big data-driven detailed insight into the dynamics of entrepreneur, investor, and company networks that power new value creation within economies.
