Ten to Watch

Meet the movers and shakers we're expecting big things from in 2016

Posted

Behind every great idea is a bright and bold, risk-taking individual. Lucky for us, Providence is full of these folks who are moving our city forward. From making City Hall run smoother to closing the word gap in low-income families and fighting for equality within the Police Department – to name a few – here’s who to watch this year. We are expecting to see big things from them in the future.

Meet 2016's 10 to Watch

Join us on January 21 for our annual Ten to Watch party
