Providence Granola Project’s New Product Indiegogo

July 27, 2015

Last Wednesday, Beautiful Day RI (which owns and operates Providence Granola Project) launched their Indiegogo campaign for their newest product: mixed nuts. The Social Enterprise Greenhouse venture is excited to release the campaign and asks for your support in making this happen.

The event, which was held at the Social Enterprise Greenhouse Hub, included employees from Beautiful Day, members of the community, and press. Guests were able to sample the new product, vote for their favorite nut mixture, and taste-test treats from Fox Point Pickling and Narragansett Creamery with local beer from Revival Brewing. Live music was provided by Mike Maven from Young Pandas as coordinated by Do Your Dance, another Social Enterprise Greenhouse venture.

The event was a success and allowed the company to get the word out about their new product while rallying the community around the crowdfunding campaign. The event was largely organized by Beautiful Day RI’s summer intern team, which includes Crystal Rosatti (recent Brown University graduate), Morgan Wilbur (Wheaton College rising senior), and Rachel O’Shea (University of Toronto rising junior).
