What We Do

StartWheel is a centralized hub for news, events, and resources related to entrepreneurship and innovation in Hampton Roads. We aim to support and cultivate the regional entrepreneurial ecosystem. Check out our website at to learn how you can join us and connect with the community.

We hit the streets (co-working spaces, incubators, universities, etc.) to cover startups, resources, and events you should know about—and deliver them to your inbox, social media feed, and on the web.

Note From the Editor

This is StartWheel's inaugural E-Newsletter. We hope you find the content interesting and useful. Please forward it to anyone you think may want to follow along as StartWheel continues its mission to bring the Hampton Roads entrepreneurial community together.

Resource Rally

Each newsletter edition we highlight a local resource that can help grow your business.

Percolator is a creative community and coworking space for entrepreneurs, startups, and innovators in the heart of downtown Norfolk. Percolator has invited the StartWheel community in with open arms. They're incredibly collaborative, which we saw first-hand when they hosted 757Pitch in May 2018 and unWINEd in June 2018.
