Who to Watch 2024

Nine change-makers passionate about making Providence the best city to live life and launch ideas


If there were ever a place to grow an idea from sticky note scrawlings to community-backed cooperatives, it’s Providence. Small enough to forge connections and keen enough to test the waters with new ideas, the Creative Capital is an ideal entrepreneurial playground for innovation – whether incubating enterprising pursuits in a range of industries, fostering equitable opportunities for youth, addressing the climate crisis, mining our city’s history to source solutions for today, or imagining a more just world.

At Providence Monthly, our January Who to Watch feature is all about identifying and celebrating standout individuals who have emerged on our radar – we keep our ears to the ground all year for rising stars you may not have heard of yet but will soon see their efforts permeate the fabric of our city. It is our honor to introduce you to nine industrious go-getters poised to shake things up in 2024 and beyond.

Who to Watch honorees each answered five questions about their work and plans for the city in 2024; answers were minimally edited or trimmed by our team to account for space. To learn more, follow each individual on social media or online.
