On March 28, 2012, Tim Kaine visited the Corrugated Box Building in South Richmond and toured the facilities, speaking with tech workers at Tumblr and small business owners. During his visit, Kaine laid out his approach to job creation in a "Talent Economy."

The recently renovated Corrugated Box Building has been referred to as "Richmond's Silicon Valley" due to the large number of high tech startups that it houses. It is a phenomenal facility--a restored warehouse from the late 19th or early 20th century, converted into a state-of-art 21st century workspace. The Corrugated Box Building is packed with innovative startups, expanding tech businesses like Tumblr, and the architecture and design firm that designed the renovation of the building: 3north.
