Looking for some career inspiration? You have two opportunities this Thursday night:

Design Meet-up. Hannah Chung and Aaron Horowitz, co-founders of Sproutel, which makes interactive toys for kids with chronic illnesses, are teaming up with Nicole Mercer, a co-founder of Thryve, a mobile food coach, at a meet-up for new and experienced designers. Bring your laptop and get the chance to run your ideas by other designers. Wireless and coffee too. The event is free, but registration is required.

Thursday, February 21 from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Founders League, 95 Chestnut St., Providence.

Social Enterprise Meet-up. Anyone interested in transportation alternatives should come out to the Friendship Café at Amos House Thursday night for FACES of Social Enterprise. Bari George, the chief executive officer of Bike Newport and Green Drive, a onetime airport shuttle bus that once ran on diesel and now runs on biofuel. Refreshments are available and the event is free, but registration is required.

Thursday, February 21 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Friendship Café at Amos House, 500 Broad St., Providence.

Both events are sponsored by the Founders League, a partnership between start-up incubator Betaspring, the Providence Chamber of Commerce, Brown University and University of Rhode Island to spur economic development in the state.
