About this Event

Each week we bring together a diverse community including entrepreneurs, industry leaders, small businesses, and researchers to share new ideas, learn from one another, and launch new ventures.

Open Office Hours | 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Connecting emerging entrepreneurs and startups with industry and sector experts for 30 minutes of free advising. This week features experts in product development, content, and marketing strategy.

Open Mic | 5:30 PM

"Intro to Financial Projections & Budgeting" | 5:40 - 6:30 PM

Building a sound budget for your venture is vital to shaping your market strategy and communicating the your business case. Maryann Matthews (MultiCultural Innovation Center) leads a workshop offering techniques for utilizing Excel to build templates for more accurate budget and forecast models.

"Closing the Venture Funding Gap for Female Entrepreneurs" | 6:40 - 7:30 PM

In 2018, Female startup founders accounted for just 3% of venture capital funding. This gender gap is causing more and more funders to recognize the business case for investing solely in women owned businesses. Join an engaging discussion about the patterns and lessons learned from shifting an investment model that attempts to recognize and minimize unconscious bias in the venture funding landscape.

Beat the line! If this is your first time attending a Venture Café Providence event, you will need to create a Venture Café account. The best option is to create this account BEFORE you arrive to save precious time for making connections, hearing great talks, taking pictures, posting ideas, and noshing on some local eats.
