What does it take to build a smart state?

Building smart cities and communities requires interdisciplinary, interagency and multi-jurisdictional coordination. It also requires smart public-private-partnerships, new business and procurement models and collaborative co-creation through applied research and innovation.

What does it take to build a smart state?

At the Colorado Technology Association Smart Cities Symposium, Venture Smarter, Arrow Electronics, Colorado Smart Cities Alliance, and more civic-minded leaders from enterprise, government, academia, research, impact investors, startups and nonprofits will dive deep into what it takes to create a state full of connected communities.

Venture Smarter CEO, Zack Huhn, will moderate a discussion about active efforts related to pilot projects, non-traditional procurement, technology standards, planning blueprints, federal policies and funding or financing allocations that are accelerating the development of smart cities and regions across North America – creating better places to live, work and visit.
