And that’s only a few of the folks! Here’s the generous offer from BIF:
In effort to make sure that Providence’s talented geeks can fully participate in the BIF-3 Summit on October 10-11, 2007, the Business Innovation Factory is offering five scholarships to the Summit that cuts the registration fee in half (from $1,000 to $500). This includes both days of programming, snacks and lunches, materials, and a reception with the storytellers.
