The Rhode Island Foundation wants your ideas for fixing the state’s economy.
The nonprofit will hold a two-day event called Make It Happen RI on Sept. 7 and 8 to bring together leaders in the state’s private sector to develop an action plan for improving economic development. Here are the themes for the nine working sessions:
- Attacking Unemployment
- Marketing Rhode Island
- Support + Growth for Existing Businesses
- Business Environment
- Closing Skills Gaps
- Startups: Helping Entrepreneurs Thrive
- Quality of Place
- Leveraging/Maximizing Sites
- High Potential/High Impact Sectors
