IoT for Good: Connected, Inclusive, Smart Cities: A HUBweek Event
Babson College, Verizon, Continuum and the Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics invite you to join us during HUBweek to explore how we can use Entrepreneurial Thought and Action® as an accelerator for change. Join fellow ideators and innovators to consider how the Internet of Things (IoT) can be used as a force for good to build smart cities, create inclusive communities and achieve the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At this event you will learn from thought leaders & practitioners about how smart cities and inclusive communities have the potential to be impacted by IoT; experience the latest Internet of Things (IoT) technologies; participate in hands-on design challenges to imagine breakthrough solutions; and hear from current local entrepreneurs who are making a social impact with their IoT-driven startups.
