About The Panel
See how a ‘neighborly’ approach to hyper-local can engage local residents, transform local economies and strengthen local communities.
In the last year, there’s been a mad dash towards hyper-localization. And it’s not just about finding your local pizza man. A few new startups are using hyper-local tech to recreate the neighborhood experience online in order to enable better interactions offline.
But what defines a neighborhood anyway? Given that neighborhoods are in constant change—spatially, socially, politically and economically—how can such an elusive concept get translated online? And to what end?
Join us for a discussion with pioneers of local tech to learn how they are uniquely overcoming the (very human) challenges of building these ‘neighborly’ online environments, hear how they are envisioning the future of connected neighborhoods and see why business and local government should be getting involved today.
