Innovate Newport Networking Events Fosters Growth and Connection

Following a successful food industry gathering, the next networking event on March 14 focuses on MedTech


The food and beverage industry is constantly evolving, with new trends, technologies, and shifting consumer preferences emerging on a regular basis. To stay ahead of the curve and thrive in such a fast-paced environment, companies must collaborate and work together to drive innovation – this is where Innovate Newport comes in.

On February 15, the co-working space  hosted a networking event focused on the food and beverage sector that exemplified the value of industry collaboration. With over 125 attendees, the event brought together entrepreneurs, experts, and professionals within the field. 

Events like these are instrumental in sparking innovation as they allow individuals within an industry to connect, collaborate, and brainstorm on the opportunities and challenges faced. Jamie Schapiro of Chef's Life recently shared, “In my more than 25 years within the food and beverage industry, this event was a career highlight for me. The sold-out event provided such an engaging audience with rich discussions across a dream team panel of experts.”

Pleased with the triumph of their inaugural food and beverage-focused gathering, Innovate Newport plans to host a series of bi-monthly networking occasions targeting other industries. Their upcoming event on March 14 in Newport will focus on Rhode Island's booming MedTech sector. Led by a panel including Aidan Petrie from the New England Medical Innovation Center and Neil Steinberg from the RI Life Science Hub, it promises more engaging dialogues among leaders within the field. For those interested in attending, registration details and more information can be found on Facebook.
