March 20, 2018 | Providence, RI
On March 20, corporate leaders and entrepreneurs from Rhode Island and Israel came together to discuss making entrepreneurship more accessible and channeling entrepreneurship to focus on improving society. PresenTense is an Israeli startup accelerator with proven solutions to these questions. PresenTense aims to nurture coexistence through innovation and invests in various underserved communities within Israeli society. The event, organized by the Rhode Island-Israel Collaborative (RIIC) and PresenTense, brought the CEO and three graduates from PresenTense to Rhode Island to exchange their knowledge with RI counterparts and discuss how to collaborate and use their knowledge to help empower disadvantaged members and groups of the RI community.
The event was organized by the Rhode Island-Israel Collaborative (RIIC) and hosted by the Rhode Island Social Enterprise Greenhouse (SE Greenhouse), an incubator for innovation that locally provides social entrepreneurs and ventures with the services they need to move from “idea to execution to scale.”
