Five Years of Gather!

We just celebrated five awesome years of coworking in Richmond, VA… So of course a party was in order! We threw down where it all started — Gather Downtown! Check out this fun photo collection starting with our celebration last week, and from there we’ll move on to some fun photos of our original location!
