Scaling Communities Across the U.S. (Day 2 Session from the Gigabit City Summit)
Panelists: Catherine Bracy (Code for America), Chris Lawrence (Mozilla), Bill Wallace (US Ignite). Moderator: Dan O'Neil (Smart Chicago)
Just as 1 Million Cups has grown to over 50 cities in building its entrepreneurial community, other efforts with national scope have emerged to serve other verticals. Code for America fosters government innovation; Mozilla’s Hive Learning Networks focus on education; and US Ignite builds the gigabit application economy. We’ll hear about challenges, strategies and opportunities in expanding these programs to additional markets, and learn why Gigabit Cities tend to be so attractive for expansion.
