Even smarter: Smart Cincy Celebrates, maintains momentum
The first Regional Smart Cities Initiative launched April 25 when Venture Smarter presented the Smart Cincy Summit. The day-long thought leadership summit was a great first step, but much has happened since then. This Friday (June 9th) at Astronomer’s new downtown Cincinnati headquarters, Smart Cincy Celebrates! At the happy hour event, Venture Smarter will give an update on the Greater Cincinnati region’s smart cities efforts featuring active and upcoming projects throughout Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. We will also recognize the people that made the Smart Cincy Summit a success including Nexigen and Smartlink CIO Jon Salisbury who will unveil the Smart City Technology and Planning Framework developed by local businesses and academic leaders that is being adopted by IEEE as the smart city standard. Salisbury, University of Cincinnati professor Dr. Jonathan Corey and Venture Smarter CEO Zack Huhn are members of the IEEE smart city planning committee, making Cincinnati truly one of the world’s most important smart cities innovation hubs.
