Event description

The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically accelerated the trend democratization of technologies and of humans working remotely. Together, these trends are affecting markets, education, governments, and how human societies operate.

Developing new ways of operating in these environments is critical in order to balance digital and real-world interactions at scale. This episode of the GeoTech Hour, which takes place every Wednesday from 12:00 – 1:00 pm Eastern, will highlight the democratization of technologies and what it means for entrepreneurs and investors. This discussion addresses how more remote work affects communities, organizations, nations, and the planet and identifies the action steps to ensure these two trends are forces for good in the world.

Join us for another lively discussion to consider how the world is changing and how we each can be a part of the #GoodTechChoices needed to rebuild a better world together.
