Issue 3 of RISBJ
Our cover story this month features NuLabel Technologies, a Providence based company founded in 2009 by Brown graduates Ben Lux, Max Winograd, and Mike Woods. The sole mission of NuLabel is to eliminate waste from labels using its Zero-Waste Label Solution. Unlike thousands of other students that graduate from one of our prestigious Universities only to leave after graduation, the Brown grads built a network in Rhode Island and utilized many resources making it an easy decision to call Providence their home.
We’d like to welcome new authors Michael Martin Joe Ranone, Larry Girouard, Daniel Aponte, Gerals Price, Danny Dehoney and former Mayor of Providence Buddy Cianci. With their help, and the continued support of our regular contributors, we are happy to see the April edition grow 76 pages, bringing the small business community even more valuable content. If you are interested in becoming a contributor for RISBJ or if there is an article you would like to see in a future issue, please contact us.
As an ongoing commitment to the small business community, RISBJ coordinated a Startup Rhode Island discussion forum. This forum featured Donna Harris, regional director of the Startup America Partnership, who spoke to over 50 entrepreneurial leaders from out state. In the forum, we identified both the strengths and weaknesses of Rhode Island and began to put a plan in place to address each of the issues. There will be a follow-up meeting later this month to establish our leadership team and create a plan of action. To find out more about the Startup Rhode Island initiative, visit http://ri.s.co.
