Join us for an evening of excitement and inspiration as we showcase the finalists of this year’s competition. Our esteemed panel of judges have carefully evaluated each finalist’s business plan and pitch, and we are thrilled to have the top finalists present their ideas to a public audience.

Throughout the evening, you will have the opportunity to hear from the finalists, learn about their innovative ideas, and ask them questions about their business plans. The presentations will be followed by networking, where you can connect with other entrepreneurs, investors, and members of the Rhode Island innovation community.

Finally, we will announce the winners of the competition, who will receive cash prizes, in-kind services, and invaluable exposure to potential investors and customers. We invite you to celebrate the achievements of the winners and all the finalists, and to join us in supporting the growth and success of the Rhode Island business ecosystem!
