Our Mission & Values Lisa DeNoia 2018-05-30T14:34:56-04:00
To foster a collaborative community environment where entrepreneurs, startups, small businesses, and professionals can connect, grow, and thrive in Virginia Beach.
We encourage and facilitate the inter-connectedness of our members and the greater business community. The people who work here, their interactions, and the relationships that form are the most important result of what we do.
We help our members achieve their goals and thrive, so we can continue to grow together. We strategically add to our service offerings based on our members’ needs to create value and increase our impact on their success.
We hold each other and ourselves accountable for our commitments and our actions. We follow through with what we promise and meet or beat deadlines. When we fail, we own up to our mistakes and take steps to prevent them from happening again.
We take initiative to try new things, prototype and adapt our organization to continually improve. We are flexible, innovative and creative, as we transform ideas into profitable ventures that add value to our members and the greater community.
We work better together. Our team is cohesive and collaborative. We’re not above or below any task. We keep each other on our toes and in the loop. We pitch in to get the job(s) done efficiently and effectively together.
We are admirably purposeful in what we do. We set goals and stick to them. We’re tenacious and persistent, overcoming any obstacles in our path to success. We’re adaptable to unexpected situations but steadfast in our determination to finish what we start.
