For entrepreneurs, it’s easy to get distracted by all the little things that come between you and your passion.

That’s where InUnison comes in.

“There’s a place for me now”
Jolinda, a well-connected member of the RVA community, was familiar with the association as Retail Merchants. However, she didn’t think it aligned with her business as a retail-focused organization. With the rebranding to InUnison and the revamped membership model to serve all local businesses, she’s found a new home for her creative agency. As an active member, she never misses an opportunity to connect with other local businesses and has taken advantage of many of the membership perks!
