See the original announcement and post below from Founder Institute:
Cincinnati is rapidly becoming a front runner in the smart cities conversation. Founder Institute Cincinnati is happy to support the upcoming Smart Cincy Summit on April 25-26.
Smart Cincy will be awarding a Fellowship to the upcoming Founder Institute Cincinnati semester, which waives tuition and course fees to a rising star entrepreneur passionate about solving problems relating to the smart cities pillars: Connectivity, Mobility, Security and Sustainability.
On Wednesday, April 26, Founder Institute Cincinnati and Smart Cincy will be hosting a Frontier Founders Forum. Presenters include Zack Huhn, CEO Venture Smarter, and Jon Salisbury, CTO Nexigen. They will be discussing the Smart Cincy and smart cities landscape, including the opportunities for founders to build companies by solving large scale social issues.
Smart Cities use technology as a tool to create equitable outcomes for people. The Smart Cincy Summit, IEEE, Venture Smarter, and the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will host the Smart Cincy Inclusion Breakfast ahead of the Smart Cincy Summit on April 25th.
On WVXU this week, Smart Cincy organizational founder Zack Huhn said, "Last century we automated communication. This century, possibly even this decade, we have the opportunity to automate transportation." The truth is that many of the companies that would have to work together to make that happen will be attending the inaugural Smart Cincy Summit next week beginning on April 25th.
Join the Smart Cincy team and help make Greater Cincinnati a smart region! We are looking for volunteers to support event and programming efforts the week of the first Smart Cincy Summit which will welcome main event programming on Tuesday, April 25th. Perks, camaraderie, food, and free tickets to Smart Cincy events are just a few of the volunteer offerings. We are excited to welcome in supporters of Smart Cincy efforts and are flexible with scheduling and commitments.
Wednesday April 26 is Smart Cincy Summit Community Day! Founder Institute will host the Frontier Founder Smart Cities Forum and leaders will announce the Smart Cincy Fellowship program that will be inclusive of Founder Institute scholarships and resources for emerging entrepreneurs looking to tackle smart city challenges.
Smart Cities are healthy places for residents and guests. Sustainable food systems, clean water and clean air, active outdoor areas, and data-driven healthcare solutions are all key elements of smart cities that use technology as a tool to create better outcomes to people.
Technology, Transportation, and Tourism are fundamental elements of any smart city, where leaders in public and private sectors use technology as a tool to improve outcomes for people. Join elected and public officials, academic and business leaders, and community members committed to building a smart region in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana at the Smart Cincy Summit on April 25th at Union Hall.
Rhonda Binda's keynote "The C's of Smart Cities" will be featured at The Smart Cincy Summit where we will talk about connectivity, community, culture, and commerce as Greater Cincinnati leaders continue to take steps at building a smart region.
We automated communication during the last century, and we are on pace to automate communication during this one. The question remains: what mode or modes of transportation will help us achieve that goal?
