Innovation hubs

New Lab (www.newlab.com) , The Hub at Grand Central Tech (www.hubatgct.com), Urban Future Lab (www.ufl.nyc), Urban-X (www.urban-x.com), and B New York City (www.b-buildingbusiness.com/new-york/b-new-york-city/) are recently formed innovation hubs in New York. What roles do they play in our city? How are they transforming the way people work and collaborate in accelerating the development process of new technologies? We will hear from the people who run these spaces to find out. We're inviting the tech and business community, local residents, government officials, academic institutions, and relevant NGOs to join us in learning about how these innovation hubs are not only fostering entrepreneurship but finding solutions to pressing issues affecting our city. In addition, we will hear about our upcoming SMART CITIES NEW YORK (https://www.smartcitiesny.com) conference and expo taking place at Pier 36 ( http://pier36nyc.com ) in NYC May 8-10, 2018 and how you can be involved.
