Reilly Kons


Director

Before transitioning to the great City of Providence, Reilly was one of the very first hires on the Entrepreneurship team at the Roux Institute at Northeastern University. There he worked in a community, program, and partnership capacity helping a portfolio of early-stage, high-tech startups find economic success in the Greater Portland, Maine area. Additionally, Reilly is a former startup founder himself founding SubLocal, a B2B SaaS startup that helped small business owners stabilize their month to month cash flow. This was achieved through the creation and marketing of monthly subscriptions around the small businesses products and services. SubLocal was a 2021 Maine Center for Entrepreneurs Top Gun Accelerator company.

When not building stuff, helping others build stuff, or building innovation communities, Reilly spends time rooting for Boston sports teams, exploring the local craft beer scene, and playing disc golf.
