Knowledge + Innovation

Rhode Island is where the mighty forces of "grit and intellect intersect." Get immersed in a formidable talent base of world-class designers, artists and "artrepreneurs." Academic researchers, medical scientists and fabricators, alike, know that Rhode Island is the perfect place to grow and innovate. 

The Chamber is a founding member of a new public/private partnership to drive investment and grow the economy. Greater Rhode Island: Think Bigger is a complete economic development resource for understanding the B2B value proposition for starting, growing, or locating a company in the Ocean State. We have made the quest for information easy and customizable for corporate relocation, site selection, real estate professionals, and investors. 

Once in a lifetime opportunity for prime development

Meanwhile, the I-195 Redevelopment District Commission is now seeking forward-thinking proposals from developers, businesses or institutions for new investment in Providence's Knowledge District on land freed up by the highway relocation. No development proposals will be considered unless a response to this Request for Interest (RFI) has first been submitted and approved as complete. 

Proposals are due anytime up to May 1, 2014 for this first round of submissions. Submissions that do not meet the May 1, 2014 deadline, may submit after that date for review by the Executive Director for completion, but will not be reviewed for selection by the Commission until after August 1. This 3-month review process is described in the RFI and in the Developer’s Toolkit.

Please direct any questions to the Executive Director via email (
