“The Blue & You” summer speaker series will take place at Innovate Newport on Thursday mornings throughout the summer. (8:30-10 a.m.) Each session will include a presentation, Q & A, and networking. They are free and open to the public. Register through Eventbrite.
On July 20th, the topic is "The Next Frontier."
Modern transportation has changed the way we travel, and with growing populations in cities around the world, innovators are seeking new ways to make travel faster, easier, more accessible and affordable, and more sustainable.
Regent Craft is aiming to disrupt the way we travel between seaboard cities and islands with a new mode of transportation, the all-electric sea glider that can float, fly, and hydrofoil.
In this session you will hear from the founders of Regent Craft what inspired them, and the challenges and opportunities ahead.

ABOUT The Blue & You Summer Speaker Series:
Rhode Island has always had a strong connection to the ocean and the industries surrounding it like tourism & recreation, marine trades, and fisheries. For a third year in a row, The Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce will offer a Summer Speaker Series called “The Blue & You: Understanding Our Blue Economy.”
The Blue & You Series is designed to provide information that will help citizens understand what the blue economy is and how it impacts them. From real people who make their living on the water, to creative problem solving around complex issues, the Blue & You sessions will inform and inspire.
The Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce is grateful to REGENT Craft Inc, Anduril Industries, and Newport Craft Brewing & Distilling Company for sponsoring the 11-session Speaker Series, and to Grow Blue and Clean Ocean Access for supporting the series.
Start your day off with coffee and conversation around interesting topics that impact all of us.
