GoLocalProv Business Team
|Gary Sasse, heads the Hassenfeld Institute for Public Leadership|
Then, Saul Kaplan of the Business Innovation Factory will talk about the shake-up at Uber and the Amazon acquisition of Whole Foods. What are the implications to everything from what you eat and how you shop.
Will the Amazon deal make an impact on retail in Rhode Island? How quickly will it hit? Will Walmart, Stop & Shop, and Shaw's ever be the same?
Also on business Monday we will discuss the GoLocal story about how RI Commerce -- the state agency focused on building RI business -- spent two-thirds of its dollars with out-of-state companies and just a third with Rhode Island firms.
|Josh Fenton, GoLocal Co-Founder and CEO hosts GoLocal LIVE's Business Monday each week|
Business Monday is presented in partnership with Deepwater Wind.
