Riverside County, CA (March 14, 2023) – Today, the Riverside County Board of Supervisors adopted a proclamation declaring April Innovation Month! The Riverside County Office of Economic Development is pleased to announce the return of Riverside County’s Innovation Month which has taken place every April, since its launch in 2017 (excluding 2020).
Riverside County Innovation Month is a celebration of innovation and entrepreneurship and the ecosystem that supports small business. Innovation Month is designed to foster the entrepreneurial spirit by connecting innovators and entrepreneurs to workshops, panels, business leaders, investors and more. Throughout the month of April, stakeholders throughout the county will host many events including regional fast pitch competitions that will showcase local business ideas.
Riverside County innovators and entrepreneurs who are interested in showcasing their own business or product concept are urged to register for a regional fast pitch event! Contestants who participate in a regional fast pitch will showcase their ideas in front of a live audience including judges that are business investors, local elected leaders, and successful business owners. Winners of the regional events will advance to the fast pitch finale to be held in downtown Riverside at the UCR Arts Block on April 27, 2023 where the top three contestants will take home cash prizes.
The Riverside County Office of Economic Development welcomes a new website: www.rivcoinnovation.org that will highlight innovation happening all year long in the county, from biotech to cleantech, as well as the county’s Innovation Incubators, and much more. The website features a webpage dedicated to Riverside County Innovation Month which can be visited for more detailed information on Innovation Month and how to participate at these events.
