Volume 2, Issue 3 Featuring Astonish Results
Welcome to Volume 2, Issue 3 of RISBJ. You’ll find many familiar faces in this issue, along with first time contributors Michael Raspallo, Akanksha Aga and Jeanne Hulit. We’ve also featured four inspiring startups: Aircus, Ecotop, Petrocelli Marketing and RoMor Creatives. In addition to this new issue of RISBJ, we are hosting several upcoming events to help with business education and networking.
Our partnership with NetworkingRI has been a huge success. Working together with Peter George, Jay White and Susan and Rick Lataille, our events held on the first Monday of each month have averaged over 300 business professionals from all size companies in a variety of industries. Our next event will be held on Monday May 6th. Check our website for more details and be sure to join us.
From an educational standpoint, RISBJ is helping the SBA and SCORE to promote a series of workshops during 2013 Small Business Week in June. In addition to a weeklong celebration of Rhode Island Small Business award winners, several workshops will be held throughout the week including our lunch and learn series which will cover a variety of topics related to marketing, finance and technology.
Also during Small Business Week, RISBJ has teamed up with our friends at GoLocalProv to host an event on Tuesday June 11th to recognize and celebrate this year’s award winners. This event will feature over 30 exhibitors as well as a series of short speaking segments from some of Rhode Island top business leaders. This free event is one you won’t want to miss! Be on the lookout for more details coming very soon.
And last but certainly not least, I want to welcome the newest member of the RISBJ family Stacy Ambroziak. Stacy joins RISBJ as a client marketing consultant and account manager. In her role, Stacy is helping our clients gain maximum exposure to their market through our magazine, website and email. You’ll be sure to see Stacy at upcoming networking events.
