What is Springfield Innovation Fest (SIF)?
The first of its kind held in Western MA, SIF is a live event celebrating entrepreneurs, innovators, geeks, change-makers, and creatives in the Western MA region by showcasing our thriving innovation ecosystem. The Fest will include a day of programming with speakers and panelists. We will also have lots of networking time! The day is open to everyone on a first come, first serve basis.
The official lineup of speakers will be posted soon on the VVM website, but until then, the event schedule is set so you can make plans.
It’s time to put greater Springfield on the map as an innovation hub! It should come as no surprise that we’re producing startups and innovation on a par with much larger cities. After all, Springfield was once known as the City of Firsts. It’s part of our DNA. We’ve also got something more – a diverse group of startup founders and a high energy culture that is changing the face of the economy in this region.
Who will be at SIF?
You, of course, and everyone who wants to be part of the sense of energy and possibility that is happening at the Valley Venture Hub on June 12th. All day passes will be for sale, with limited availability, so be sure to snap up your tickets early.
Who hosts SIF?
Valley Venture Mentors is a community organization offering training, funding, and mentorship to startups and entrepreneurs. They will be our host in the Valley Venture Hub, a brand new innovation and coworking center located in downtown Springfield, MA.
