2020 PVD Design Catalyst

2020 Providence Design Catalyst Photo & Story Series

The Providence Design Catalyst program is a competitive grant program providing seed capital, business mentorship, professional development training, and peer-to-peer networking to help design businesses reach their growth goals. Design Catalyst is a program of DESIGNxRI.

The 11 design businesses of the program catalyzed their business for the first six months of 2020. While under regular circumstances, the Catalyst program is a fast-paced and challenging five months. This year’s cohort had to adapt quickly and overcome additional obstacles brought on by the global COVID-19 pandemic. In lieu of the Final Showcase, DESIGNxRI and the grantees pivoted to celebrate the work and achievements of the grantees through this photo and story series.

The photos and stories has been posted throughout the month of July and August. Meet the 2020 Providence Design Catalyst grantees!
