It’s StartUp Week RI

Start Up Week RI begins this morning with 5 days of events showcasing Rhode Island’s startup community.

Rhode Island’s Entrepreneurs Who Are Shaping our World

The week will be bringing together entrepreneurs, local leaders, students, corporations, investors and friends together to connect, collaborate and grow through entrepreneurial events. Across the state, Rhode Island’s Innovation Community has come together to showcase their events during this week.

They offer a big thank you to the community and partners who are bringing you this exciting week. Join them to learn, network, and play.

The Oct. 18 to Oct. 22 event is both an acknowledgement of how far the Ocean State has come in its efforts to be a home to innovation — particularly in the science and food technology areas — and an examination of how much bigger its entrepreneurial scene could get.

To register for both online and in-person events, scroll down and browse their online Event Schedule. There will be registration links for each session.
