Recap Online Mission 14 May: New York – Inclusive Smart Cities is Business

Our Online Mission was off to New York on Thursday 14 May. Where we met Mr Alexander Shermansong, CEO of the Civic Consulting USA. He uses digitization and technologization for the poorer part of the society. The part of America that is often not connected to the smart society. By making social housing projects smart, they are used more efficiently and the residents become more resilient. In this way they save costs and are better connected to the rest of America. That is not charity, but business. Because this large group is a forgotten but interesting group for smart city companies.
