In today’s episode, I want to introduce you to my longtime friend and OG ecosystem builder, Larkin Garbee.
Larkin has put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into jumpstarting entrepreneurial support initiatives, both in Richmond, Virginia, as well as nationally.
In this conversation, we talk about handing initiatives over to people who can carry them forward, and the upside of spending over a decade in an ecosystem.
Join me on a trip back home to Richmond.
