Va.'s Secretary of Commerce on why Virginia is a top state for business.. Secretary of Commerce and Trade for the State of Virginia, Jim Cheng, explains to Craig Forbes of Business Mondays at the Urban Farmhouse why Virginia is such a great place to do business. He cites stable pro-business policies, a close proximity to Washington, D.C. and major ports, great airport access, world-class universities, and a high quality of life as the reasons for Virginia's reputation as one of the top business hubs in the country. Regarding Richmond specifically, Mr. Cheng mentions the June 3rd kick-off for Small Business Week at VCU, and extolls the rise in new entrepreneurial activity in the capital city. He credits the Richmond Venture Forum, RichTech, the innovation outreach efforts of the Richmond Chamber of Commerce, and a burgeoning community of Virginia angel investors for this entrepreneurial buzz.
