Description

There’s never been a better time to be an entrepreneur in Rhode Island! Innovation, inspiration, interconnectivity, investment – all are accelerating here, driven by a growing community committed to supporting the development of promising new ventures.

Join the Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship, Slater Technology Fund, and Venture Café Providence for a special sushi networking event to celebrate entrepreneurship in our state.

  • Meet the 2019 Brown Venture Founders, Kevin Eve ‘18, co-founder of Uproot, a plant-based milk company, and Rishabh Singh ‘17, the founder of Gradly, a software concierge that assists international students moving to the U.S. The Brown Venture Founders award, an initiative of the Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship in collaboration with the Slater Fund, supports recent Brown graduates and alumni who are building startups in Rhode Island.

  • Hear from Tim Rowe, founder of CIC and Venture Café, about bringing Venture Café's unique approach to building innovation ecosystems to Rhode Island. Venture Café brings together innovators and entrepreneurs at its weekly Thursday Café Night Gathering to engage in spontaneous conversations and semi-curated programming, creating lasting connections that result in innovations that solve some of the world’s greatest challenges and generate economic growth. Venture Café will also be operating District Hall, a collaborative, innovative event venue, public workspace, and programming hub designed to bring people together at every level.

  • Mingle with Rhode Island’s leading entrepreneurs, innovators, investors and technologists.

If you’re an innovator, entrepreneur, investor, researcher or technologist, this is the event for you!
