N.E. Tech Project launches in R.I.

Posted 4/1/13

PROVIDENCE – The New England Tech Project, a regional technology-advocacy organization, has launched in the Ocean State.

NETP launched in partnership with regional economic-development initiative bRIdge, which is led by the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Rhode Island.

The newly launched, technology-advocacy organization comprises business and technology leaders, academics, industry experts and community and nonprofit partners from across the region and aims to promote collaboration among New England’s six states in order to “ensure the region remains one of the world’s leading tech hubs,” said a release.

According to the NETP website, the coalition is specifically focused on expanding broadband access in urban and rural areas; supporting efforts to increase technology-related instruction from kindergarten to graduate school; advocating for tech entrepreneurs and consumers at local, state and federal levels of governments; and building the regional technological infrastructure necessary to create jobs at every level of the economy.

“We tend to think of the economy of each New England state as separate from the states around it, but the truth is that a thriving, modern economy in Rhode Island would benefit the whole region,” James Chisholm, executive director of NETP, said in a statement. •
