Exploring Today's Skills Needs: What are the Talent Needs of Startups Today and in the Future? Reversed (Room: #C1722)
Limited Capacity seats available

Longmont Startup Week has a focus upon Smart Cities, as this movement has become very familiar in recent years, but how often do we think about the “Smart Skills” necessary to operate and maintain these cities, or the startups that will be created tomorrow or in the future in support of those Smart Cities.

If a smart city leverages "Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to enhance quality, performance, and interactivity of urban services and infrastructure to reduce costs and resource consumption and to improve contact between citizens and government,” then what will be the skills required to run, maintain and inform those cities.

Come along and hear what skills smart cities are looking for, what startups of today and tomorrow are looking for, and join in on the conversation about what skills we should be focusing on for our educational resources.

In this session we will be taking a reversed approach, meaning our panel will be asking questions of the audience! Our panel consisting of Tomorrow's Entrepreneurs and our subject matter expert will be learning from you, our mentors, seasoned entrepreneurs, service providers, community mentors and subject matter experts.

The mechanics: 
Each question or conversational topic will be posed to the audience and invited to answer. Those invited to respond will have just a few short minutes (timed) to respond, if there is no audience respondent the dubious task will fall to the panel subject matter expert.

Let’s see who gets stumped first! Longmont Startup Week se enfoca en Smart Cities, ya que este movimiento se ha vuelto muy familiar en los últimos años, pero ¿con qué frecuencia pensamos en las "Smart Skills" necesarias para operar y mantener estas ciudades, o las empresas que se crearán? mañana o en el futuro en apoyo de esas ciudades inteligentes.

Si una ciudad inteligente aprovecha las "tecnologías de la información y la comunicación (TIC) para mejorar la calidad, el rendimiento y la interactividad de los servicios urbanos y la infraestructura para reducir los costos y el consumo de recursos y para mejorar el contacto entre los ciudadanos y el gobierno" entonces, ¿cuáles serán las habilidades necesarias para administrar, mantener e informar a esas ciudades?
Participe y aprenda qué habilidades están buscando las ciudades inteligentes, qué nuevas empresas de hoy y de mañana estamos buscando nosotros, y participe en la conversación sobre las habilidades en las que deberíamos enfocar nuestros recursos educativos.
