Owen Johnson ~ Betaspring, ConnectProvidence

Great to have Owen Johnson join me again on MaximizingProgress.tv! We talked about his latest activities in the innovation and entrepreneurship hotspot of Providence, RI. These include his continued support for Connect Providence, which helps entrepreneurial folks get linked through information, education, and fun monthly gatherings. Also Owen has launched Betaspring, a Providence-based mentorship-driven startup accelerator program. And most recently he's been working with the Awesome Foundation on launching a Providence branch. Owen's an MIT alum in CS where he discovered early-on the joys of building programmable LEGOs, virtual spaces, and working on the Web. He co-founded InterDimensions, an early web-consultancy, and the Webmasters' Guild and most recently Investment Instruments Corporation.
