Southeast ELGL board member Michael O’Brien, the founder and principal of MOB Advocacy, will be MCing a webinar on “Smart Cities.” He’s chosen three startup companies that are getting national recognition for the work they are doing to talk to the ELGL membership.
What are the most promising startups creating tools, apps, and other advancements that help our city governments work smarter, our citizens be more engaged and make it easier and more enjoyable to live, work or visit cities? 1776, a Washington, D.C.-based accelerator, recently held a nation-wide search for those working on issues related to “smart cities” (i.e. transportation, public safety, citizen engagement, politics, sustainability, and small business services).
Three of the smart cities finalists will be talking to ELGL about how their companies (and startups in general) help local governments work smarter and local government leaders be more effective. So mark your calendars for July 31st at 12:00 pm EDT.
