Technology Business Incubator and Accelerator

A new, exciting business hub is being created in Newport, RI. It’s called the InnovateNewport. It entails the re-purposing and redevelopment of the Sheffield School, an idle City-owned public school property, as an innovative technology accelerator and flex space. It’s a model of public/private sector collaboration and visionary community economic development.  For more information click here

    I agree with @JGroarke and his suggestion about a regular newsletter or even a one paragraph summary of “what’s new?” so the world (including potential investors) can see a “drumbeat” of progress.

  • John Groarke

    Great work on the incubator to Paul Carroll and his staff and the Newport chamber of commerce. How about a weekly newsletter with a Newport centric name detailing activities once program is officially started?

    Again, great work to all…

    I believe there is a scheduled call or meeting tomorrow, Tuesday, 10/7, that would provide new details regarding Newport TechWorks. Is this correct? If so could you provide logistics for this session? If incorrect, could you provide future date etc. of when we might be able to learn more?
    Thank you,
