Open Coffee - South County Edition gains traction
By Michelle Girasole
"Yes, Virginia, there is a tech entrepreneur community alive and well in southern Rhode Island. As I wrote in a blog post in February, we had a hunch that maybe, just maybe, there might be a collection of RI Nexus followers who might not want to drive "all the way to Providence", but may gather "locally" for coffee and connections. As you can see from the photos, there is indeed a thriving tech biz community. So we are happy to report that the RI Nexus Open Coffee, South County edition (affectionately nicknamed "RINOCO-SOCO") will continue, on the third Thursday of every month, at Bagelz Wickford.
The conversations I've had run the gamut: new mobile phone applications being developed, web business models, the state of the venture capital market, the challenges of straddling the employment/ business startup period, forming partnerships, exploring web applications, what's buzzing on Twitter, and, admittedly, how nice it is to park in Wickford without ever worrying about a parking ticket. We have welcomed people from Providence to Connecticut to Hope Valley to Jamestown. All are welcome.
Please join us this Thursday, May 21st, between 9am and 11am.
Bagelz Wickford, upstairs loft area
21 W. Main St.
