“Venture Smarter helps leaders across agencies and sectors research, develop, fund, and deploy smart strategies and technologies to help create better places to live, work, and visit. This acquisition will help us better support innovators working on projects that share that vision.” said Rhonda Binda, CGO of Venture Smarter.

Venture Smarter CEO Zack Huhn said, “’Labs’ will focus on innovation projects and commercialization.
