Editor’s Note: Below is a press release from MAXX Potential seeking to reach people interested in pursuing a career in tech and computer programming.
Once a Richmond-based startup, MAXX Potential decided to expand geographically by opening their second office right here in Hampton Roads office—specifically in Norfolk’s ODU Innovation Center—in 2017. While still headquartered in Richmond, the company graduated from the “startup” phase into the “scale up” phase.
MAXX Potential has grown consistently in the local market, delivering IT consulting, development, and implementation services to a broad range of clients. Co-founder Kim Mahan has become a huge contributor to the local tech and startup scene, including advising several 757 Accelerate startups.
Kim recently moved her team into a new office space in the NEON District, as they’d grown too big for the ODU Innovation Center. She, too, has officially moved her primary residence from Richmond to downtown Norfolk. Hers is the kind of story that StartWheel was created to tell.
