The Weekly BUZZ: RI’s Innovation Ecosystem

Did You Know that we have a thriving Innovation Ecosystem in RI?

Join us at Venture Cafe Providence’s Pitch Event Thursday night:

Summer ‘coworking’ special extended through September…

  • Have you been thinking that you really need to get out of your home office?  
  • Have you been wishing you could work with other interesting people?  

We have a Summer Coworking special that you really should take advantage of – $75 per month for unlimited coworking Monday-Friday 9-5 and that comes with 5 hours per month use of the private conference room at no extra charge!  

This special is good for August/September but it goes back to our normal rate of $150 per month in October.  

And:  Did you know that you can use our mailing address to receive mail and to use on your collateral material/website for $25 per month (minimum 12 month commitment)?

Email Tuni if you’re interested or have any questions:

And, if you’re looking for an office in the mill complex – email Mike at  

We have a few really great small offices left – there’s one up on the main floor for ONLY $340 per month (*it’s going to go fast).  And, we have one for $500 per month just to the right of The Hive on the ground level and we also have a very cool space for $900 per month (that would fit a small team very well) also to the right of The Hive on the ground level.  

Is Coworking at The Hive RI for you?
Do you work at home?  Do you work out of cafes like Starbucks or Panera Bread?  Do you need an address on your business collateral/website?  Come by The Hive RI anytime from 9-5 Monday through Friday & try out working ‘alone together’ in a space that isn’t a coffee shop or a restaurant but still has that same kind of feel.  We have couches, chairs, tables and desks, coffee and internet connection.  It’s not for everyone but it’s perfect for some!

Art Show
We are so excited to be partnering with our ‘sister mill’ The Mill at Shady Lea, an artist colony, on this very important show we’re calling ‘A Sense of Place’.  We have mixed up local artists Joann Seddon, Josh Edenbaum, Philippe Lejeune, with Kim Ellery and more from The Mill at Shady Lea!  The show will be available for ‘self guided’ tours now through Friday, August 23rd (during regular coworking hours). #BuyLocalArt #SupportArtists
