A Woman in Tech & A Look at Rhode Island Techpreneurs
Rhode Island is the smallest state in the US but its education, business and government leaders are thinking big when it comes to the state’s economic growth. Enterprising students and graduates from Brown University, Providence College, the University of Rhode Island, the Rhode Island School or Design, and Johnson and Wales University, among others, are the heart of a growing community of technology entrepreneurs in the Ocean State. Verizon is among a number of companies and accelerator programs like Betaspring that are working with these entrepreneurs to develop products, services, and applications that enhance our lives.
WPRI-TV (Providence, RI) reporter Ted Nesi recently interviewed Donna Cupelo, Verizon’s vice president of external affairs in New England, about the company’s participation in the Rhode Island tech community, its products and services for Ocean Stated consumers, and her views on how the state can continue its growth.
