Rhode Island Startup Weekend


Rhode Island’s largest entrepreneurial event for networking, learning and sharing. This annual event builds upon the aspirations from RI Startup Day hosted by Rhode Island Coalition of Entrepreneurs in 2019.

Rhode Island’s Startup Weekend, an all virtual event, will occur on November 20 and 21, 2020. We will bring together everyone from the regional entrepreneurial ecosystem to offer a place to learn, network and be connected as a member of our growing entrepreneurial community.

Rhode Island Startup Weekend will include a plenary session on Friday afternoon to kick off the event. On Saturday morning there will be an opening plenary and 2 tracks: Startup Business Track and Technology Track.

Throughout the day on Saturday: Startups in our region will be given the opportunity to host their own Virtual Booth as part of a Startup Showcase so that people can drop by and learn about them throughout Saturday.

We will employ many ‘fun’ activities throughout the day for increasing engagement.

This includes: startup business topics, high tech topics, a “Great White Shark Tank”, plenary sessions and a chance to win prizes throughout the day.
