Our Mission

Our mission is to make Rhode Island a more small business friendly state, with a focus on building a network that connects our members with each other and with the resources they need to succeed.

How We Started

We were formed in the height of the pandemic, as small businesses were in need for drastic help. Cofounded and led by Christopher Parisi, this organization started by advocating for then Governor Raimondo to release federal funds for small business grants. This lead to tens of millions of dollars in the hands of small businesses, and a movement was formed. 

We have been active ever since, advocating through the pandemic and beyond as we fight for our RI small businesses.
