The Roxbury Innovation Center is a civic innovation center that supports local economic development by encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship. The Venture Café Foundation operates the Roxbury Innovation Center (RIC) as a mission-driven not-for-profit gathering and event space. RIC is positioned as a platform: a local space that is available for groups to provide programming that supports innovators, entrepreneurs, and business founders.
In addition to working with many programming partners–like our flagship programming partner, SkyLab, with their Educate-Activate-Incubate bootcamp approach. Venture Café also produces programming to activate and connect our space to the innovation community locally, nationally, and internationally.
