OUR MISSION
We are fostering a strong, supportive, and accessible innovation community in Providence. We build, strengthen, and connect individuals and communities of innovators while expanding access to resources, programming, and networks.

Venture Café & CIC

Venture Café began as a simple idea within the Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) in Massachusetts. A longtime global leader in building innovation campuses and shared workspaces, CIC began evolving from its concept of physical spaces to one of greater meaningful community in 2009. This new iteration grew into a global movement known for its entrepreneurial resources and inclusivity. Today, Venture Café Global Institute – now its own enterprise – expands to new cities on its own as well as alongside other CIC ventures.
