URI Ventures Launch
April 25 @ 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
You are invited to an exciting update to the University of Rhode Island’s Research and Economic Development capabilities. Impactful research and accelerated economic development are critical components to the University’s strategic plan. The connective tissue to bring about successful execution of the plan is vigorous and intuitive IP commercialization.
Historically, the URI Research Foundation has been charged with supporting IP commercialization for the University. Today, we are announcing a name change, symbolically triggering the transformation of the URIRF to address the need for rapid commercialization. The new name is URI Ventures.
Join us on April 25th at 4:00PM on campus at Richard E. Beaupre Center for Chemical & Forensic Sciences Building. We will gather at the second-floor lobby to discuss out what URI Ventures, and this next era of the University’s economic development, is all about.
You’ll be joined by our partners at the URI Business Engagement Center and URI SPARC as we cover new programs to support research and startup community at the University of Rhode Island.
