A new monthly series in partnership with RIHub, the Rhode Island-Israel Collaborative (RIIC) and District Hall/Venture Café Providence
Each month we will be bringing the best Israel has to offer to Rhode Island’s innovation community by introducing our community to some of Israel’s most exciting startup entrepreneurs. These entrepreneurs may be looking to expand into the North American market and Rhode Island offers great opportunities as a soft landing through the connections and collaborations in business, academia and research available here. Don’t miss the opportunity to join our interactive sessions and connect with the ‘Startup Nation’s Best and Brightest’.
“Our mission and purpose at District Hall/Venture Café Providence is to provide the space(s), both in-person or virtual, and programming to connect anyone with an idea or a business to the resources they need to grow. Our beautiful building at 225 Dyer St. is the gateway to Rhode Island’s Innovation and Design District, and we are very excited to partner with RIIC and RIHub to share all that RI’s Innovation ecosystem has to offer startup founders interested in a soft landing in America.”

– Avi Nevel, Founder, Director, President and CEO of RIIC
