Friends,

Given the rising tensions around us, yesterday (Nov. 14) we issued a statement reflecting on that observation and reaffirming our mission, values, and beliefs. We’d appreciate it if you’d take a moment to read it here; and, if you’re so inclined, please share it far and wide.

With Thanksgiving around the corner it seems only fitting that we provide three different programming options for you to engage with us. First, on Tuesday, the Roxbury Innovation Center will host its November Café Night from 5:00 – 9:00 P.M.. Then, on Wednesday, also at Roxbury Innovation Center, and in partnership with Microsoft Innovation and Policy Center New England, we offer a Conversation on Civic Innovation: Broadband Equity from 5:30 – 8:30 P.M.. Finally, Thursday’s Café Night at Kendall will provide a theme night focused on Big Data from 3:00 – 8:00 P.M..

Don’t forget to reserve your Office Hour appointments for both RIC’s Café Night and Café Night at Kendall now. Please see below for this week’s schedule and click through for more information about each offering.

Also, special thanks to Venture Café Volunteers Julian Chalek and Jeff Thomas for helping to organize Thursday’s theme night.

Hope to see you this week,
