MAY 25, 2023

What an exciting month May has been! 

401 Tech Bridge hosted colleagues from the University of Hawai’i and University of Alaska-Fairbanks to kick-off our RISE-UP program, welcomed a couple of new team members and our new Providence and Middletown Lab Spaces have welcomed their first of many guests. 

It has been a fun-filled, motivating month with much, much more to come!  We look forward to you joining us at upcoming events.

Recap: 401 Tech Bridge in DC

​​Members of the 401 Tech Bridge team had the privilege of traveling to Washington, DC this month to meet with members of our Rhode Island congressional delegation and national agencies to discuss the future of the Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Rhode Island and throughout the country. 
The trip brought together colleagues and fellow RISE-UP grant recipients from the University of Hawai’i and the University of Alaska – Fairbanks.   

We’re looking forward to future program developments and ongoing collaborations.

Tech Scouting - Interoperable Monitoring

401 Tech Bridge has a new tech scouting opportunity available for Interoperable Monitoring with specific criteria and requirements. This is an exciting business opportunity to gain exposure to a new potential audience and further refine your product and technology.

The 401 Tech Bridge Tech Scouting program is a civilian-driven, non-government interface between the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) and its Tech Bridge network, and 401 Tech Bridge’s nation-wide networks of innovators, entrepreneurs, startups, and tech resources.

Recap: RISE-UP Program Peers Visit RI

As the DC visit concluded, the 401 Tech Bridge/URI Research Foundation team then hosted our peers in Rhode Island. It was a fantastic opportunity to showcase local innovation and our vibrant ecosystem.  During the visit, representatives were able to meet and speak with members of our local innovation centers, URI School of Engineering and URI Graduate School of Oceanography, Matunuck Oyster Farm, Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Division Newport, NSINMITRE and REGENT Craft to name a few.
