Translating Data Into Urban Innovation

We hear a lot about data — the idea that data should be free and available to anyone for use in anything, especially when it comes from the government. But are entrepreneurs actually using this data to build meaningful solutions for our cities? Join us for a conversation on how can we encourage companies to work with data and to make broader spectrums of their own data more publicly accessible, as well as how governments can foster communication and engage with urban innovators to drive meaningful change.
