Another Thursday, another great gathering VenCaf Community! Our August thematic programming has continued to be one with spectacular showcases and this week was no different. We heard from a selection of speakers and even got a surprise visit from students from Principia College! So without further ado let’s get into it.
This week was centered around Geospatial A.I. and its far-reaching capabilities. Kicking off this conversation was Christian Johnson, CEO of Metis Analytics. Christian selectively focused on the industry of Public Safety and how this Geospatial A.I. could assist in keeping our communities safe whilst also respecting our privacy.
Next, we heard from Aaron Munzer, Steffano Chavez & John Ferry from Model City Solutions. Model City Solutions has become a finalist for the 2022 Arch Grants competition and we wanted to hear their story and their advice on how you can leverage your idea or organization to submit a successful Arch Grant application.
Finally, we had Katie Steinbeck, a Military Recruiting Liaison from Accenture Federal Services. Katie was there to speak about how Accenture has been serving cabinet-level departments and some of the largest federal organizations in the last 30 years. She was also there to seek new talent and because of that, we had a great surprise visit from the international students at Principia College! They really took over the place and made it feel like the days of old!
With that VenCaf Community, we wrap up another week of our August Programming. You can look to our website for our next thematic programming, Civic Restoration: Propositions & Productivity. Thanks as always to all of our community members to come to speak and attending the sessions! Have a great weekend all!
