What is Springfield Innovation Fest (SIF)?
A first of its kind event showcasing our region’s thriving innovation ecosystem, celebrating entrepreneurs and innovators. We’ve built a full day of programming, speakers, and panels designed to inspire and motivate your own sense of innovation. Naturally, there will be plenty of time for networking. 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. We do expect to sell out.
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.
