VENTURE CAFÉ ST. NEW ENGLAND

 Venture Café New England is a  501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that seeks to grow New England’s innovation community by working to make it more inclusive, accessible, and better connected locally, nationally, and globally. Venture Café began in 2010 as an experiment by the Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) to test a simple hypothesis: if we bring together innovators and entrepreneurs to engage in spontaneous conversations and semi-curated programming, they’ll come up with never-before-imagined innovations to make the world a better place and generate economic growth. And, it’s working. Venture Café New England continues to build a vibrant innovation community in New England through its four locations: Venture Café Cambridge, District Hall Boston, Roxbury Innovation Center, Venture Café Providence, and StartHub.org.
