Discover YOUR Entrepreneurial Ecosystem (Room: The Quarry)
Limited Capacity seats available

What exactly is a startup ecosystem?

A startup ecosystem is formed by people, startups in various stages, and various types of organizations in a location with each contributing through interactions as a dynamic and complex system to cultivate new startup opportunities.

Startup ecosystems are generally defined by these network of interactions among people, community, organizations, and their environment. They come in many types, but are usually better known as startup ecosystems of specific cities or online communities.

Come along to this Smart City, "smarter. together." session and meet a few of the organizations working together in and around Longmont to help evolve our entrepreneurial ecosystem, build and foster a Colorado regional network of resources, and create a recognition alongside our sister communities as an entrepreneurial ecosystem startups want to start-up in. ¿Qué es exactamente un ecosistema de empresas emergentes?

Un ecosistema de empresas emergentes está formado por empresarios en diversas etapas de su carrera y varios tipos de organizaciones en una específica ubicación, cada una de las cuales contribuye a través de interacciones como un sistema dinámico y complejo para cultivar nuevas oportunidades de inicio para empresas y empresarios.

Los ecosistemas de empresas generalmente se definen por esta red de interacciones entre las personas, la comunidad, las organizaciones y su entorno. Vienen en muchos tipos, pero generalmente son mejor conocidos como ecosistemas de empresas de ciudades específicas o comunidades en línea. Venga a esta sesión de Smart City, "Inteligencia/Juntos" y conozca a algunas de las organizaciones que trabajan juntas en Longmont y sus alrededores para ayudar a desarrollar nuestro ecosistema empresarial y de emprendedor, construir y fomentar una red regional de recursos de Colorado, y crear un reconocimiento junto a nuestras comunidades hermanas como un ecosistema de empresas que las nuevas empresas quieren usar y poner en marcha.

Why Smarter Cities Need Startups, and Startups Need Smarter Cities
Limited Capacity filling up

In just a few short years our world will be drastically different. Almost everything in and around us in our lives and our cities will be automated thanks to The Internet of Things (IoT) and the latest in Edge computing and communications technology. Steve Case, founder of AOL, calls this the Third Wave which is about “integrating the internet into every aspect of our lives in seamless and often invisible ways.”

This shift will have a profound impact for innovators, entrepreneurs, and startups as demand for products and services change as well as the workforce that is needed to support our hyper-connected cities of today and in the future. So where do you and your startup fit in to this new paradigm of smart city opportunity?

In this session begin your LSW’18 Smart City journey, discover some of the new innovations and opportunities that are emerging in the Smart City Market, hear and discuss why cities need startups, and why our startups need smarter cities.

Casi todo lo que está dentro y alrededor de nosotros en nuestras vidas y nuestras ciudades se automatizará gracias al Internet de las Cosas (IoT) y lo último en tecnología informática y de comunicaciones de Edge. Steve Case, fundador de AOL, llama a esto la Tercera Ola, que trata de "integrar Internet en todos los aspectos de nuestras vidas de manera transparente y, a menudo, invisible". Este cambio tendrá un profundo impacto para los innovadores y emprendedores , y las nuevas empresas a medida que cambia la demanda de productos y servicios, así como la fuerza de trabajo que se necesita para sostener y hacer funcionar nuestras ciudades hiper-conectadas de hoy y en el futuro.

Open Data: From Publishing City Data to Solving Problems
Limited Capacity seats available

The last few years has seen a steady growth in appetite for open data. Much like open source software, open data tends to have a handful of faithful advocates and, despite new datasets becoming available daily, it can sometimes feel like a challenge just breaking into this global, yet relatively niche community.

What is open data?

In short, open data is information which is free to use, share, and build upon. Typically, government and big business powers the open data market by providing non-personal data in a variety of formats (such as CSV). This information can then be used by creators in a number of ways, from simply harnessing it for knowledge to performing calculations and manipulations to essentially make something totally new.

Come join this session as we discuss what open data actually is, learn how smarter cities are looking to innovators, data scientists, and entrepreneurs for help, and explore some simple ways you can get involved in using open data from developing ideas and apps to contributing back to the community knowledge pool. Los últimos años han visto un crecimiento constante en el área de la compartición de datos abiertos. Al igual que el software de código abierto, los datos abiertos tienden a tener un grupo de defensores fieles y a pesar de que los nuevos conjuntos de datos estén disponibles a diario, a veces puede parecer un desafío ingresar a esta comunidad global.

¿Qué son los datos abiertos?
En resumen, los datos abiertos son información que se puede utilizar, compartir y construir de manera libre y gratuita. Normalmente, el gobierno y las grandes empresas potencian el mercado de datos abiertos al proporcionar datos no personales en una variedad de formatos (como CSV). Esta información puede ser utilizada por los diseñadores de varias maneras, desde simplemente aprovechar el conocimiento hasta realizar cálculos para esencialmente hacer algo totalmente nuevo. Únase a esta sesión mientras discutimos qué realmente son los datos abiertos, aprenda más de cómo las ciudades más inteligentes buscan ayuda de innovadores, científicos de datos y empresarios. Finalmente, explore algunas formas sencillas en las que puede participar en el uso de datos abiertos desde el desarrollo de ideas y aplicaciones hasta contribuir al conjunto de conocimientos de la comunidad.

Smart Cities Experiences, Solutions, and Plans
Limited Capacity seats available

Smart cities are on their way – and this time we mean it! Varying thought leaders elude to us being in the third wave of smart city evolution.

Keynote: Tom Higley - Cities, Wicked Problems & Startups that Matter
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

At the turn of the prior century fewer than 10% of the world's population lived in an urban area. Today, that number is at 50% and is projected to grow to 70%+ by mid century. This means that most of the people who experience the world's wicked problems – in health, water, food, energy, learning, infrastructure, transportation, security & privacy, waste and climate change – will experience them in cities. It also means that resources for addressing these problems will need to be found within cities and be focused on cities and their inhabitants. Startups have played a relatively insignificant role in these matters. Hold on tight, things are about to change.

*Available in English, Spanish and ASL.
*ASL Interpretation by Jessica Collins 

A fines del siglo pasado, menos del 10% de la población mundial vivía en un área urbana. Hoy en día, ese número está en el 50% y se prevé que crezca a más del 70% para mediados de siglo. Esto significa que la mayoría de las personas que experimentan los problemas del mundo -en salud, agua, alimentos, energía, educación, infraestructura, transporte, seguridad, privacidad, basura y cambio climático- los experimentarán en las ciudades. También significa que los recursos para abordar estos problemas deberán encontrarse dentro de las ciudades y enfocarse en las ciudades y sus habitantes. Las empresas startup han jugado un papel relativamente insignificante en estos asuntos. Las cosas están a punto de cambiar.

Cities Talking with Startups: A Collaborative Approach to Problem Solving (Room: Community Room B)
Limited Capacity seats available

Cities are a key to both our technological and sustainable future and a city putting a challenge on the table and inviting startups to help co-solve a problem makes for interesting startup opportunity.

During LSW’18 we have introduced you to entrepreneurial ecosystems, lab cities, cities as incubators, and the growing Smart City opportunities for startups. Let’s now have a conversation about how startups are working and collaborating with cities to co-solve some of our urban challenges. Together we can partner and innovate new partnership models, shared innovation and incubator spaces, deliver smaller real-world pilot initiatives and other approaches to fostering smart city projects that are truly meaningful.

It all starts with a conversation, working together cities and startups could make it easier for businesses to work with municipalities by running pilots before embarking on large-scale public-private partnerships. By engaging the private sector and startups in this conversational manner sparks innovation, rather than simply procuring off-the-shelf products and services.

So, come along and join this conversation between cities, the Colorado Smart Cities Alliance, and startups already having collaborative conversations. Las ciudades son la clave de nuestro futuro tanto tecnológico como sostenible y una ciudad que pone un desafío sobre la mesa e invita a las empresas startups a ayudar a resolver ese problema, la convierte en interesante para una empresa. Durante LSW'18, le presentamos ecosistemas empresariales, ciudades de laboratorio, ciudades como “incubadoras”, y las crecientes oportunidades de Smart City para empresas. Tengamos ahora una conversación sobre cómo las empresas startups están funcionando y colaborando con las ciudades para resolver conjuntamente algunos de nuestros desafíos urbanos. Juntos podemos trabajar e innovar nuevos modelos de asociación, espacios de innovación compartidos, ofrecer iniciativas piloto para el mundo real y otros enfoques para fomentar proyectos de ciudades inteligentes que sean verdaderamente significativos. Todo comienza con una conversación, trabajando en conjunto, las ciudades y las empresas startup podrían facilitar que los negocios trabajen con los municipios ejecutando programas piloto antes de embarcarse en asociaciones público-privadas a gran escala. Al involucrar al sector privado y las nuevas empresas se genera innovación, en lugar de simplemente adquirir productos y servicios disponibles en el mercado. Entonces, venga y participe en a esta conversación entre ciudades, la Alianza de Ciudades Inteligentes de Colorado, y empresas startups que ya tienen en el presente conversaciones o planes de colaboración.
