At the beginning of the year, few among us would have thought that we would be where we are now. We are living through a once-in-a-generation pandemic, with a disease that has upended every aspect of modern life, highlighted social and economic inequities past the point of ignoring them and put national and local government responses in a harsh new light.
And yet, innovators continue to innovate. At Rhode Island Inno, we’ve documented how local entrepreneurs have stepped up in the face of a truly unprecedented crisis, finding new ways to give back to this community and advancing the whole ecosystem while they’re at it. As it turns out, helping your community pull through a global pandemic requires an entrepreneurial mindset.
