RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2023/ -- The Virginia Innovation Partnership Corporation (VIPC) today announced that ReachSuite has been awarded a Commonwealth Commercialization Fund (CCF) grant for $75,000.

“We are thrilled to receive a CCF grant from VIPC and bring another hyper-growth software company to the state,” said Mr. Collin Smith, CEO and co-founder of ReachSuite. “We’re grateful for the traction and market validation we’ve received over the last few months - it’s clear we’re solving a painful problem for software companies.”

“We are pleased to award a CCF grant to ReachSuite,” said Jeanette Townsend, VIPC’s Director for Private Sector Grants. “VIPC’s CCF grant program plays an important role in getting funding to Virginia-based pre-seed and seed-stage startups when they need it most.
