Help for Local Innovators


If you are a small business owner or entrepreneur with a new product idea, the RI Small Business Development center at Johnson & Wales University has a program that can help. "Innovation Monday" is for those who intend to commercialize their product ideas and who would appreciate a structured process to advance their concepts. Moving an idea from the concept stage to the marketplace involves a multitude of challenges. This program provides valuable support services through comprehensive assessment, coaching, and networking. Upon successful completion of program gateways, innovators advance and gain access to a diverse network of local professionals who can facilitate turning ideas into the products of tomorrow.
