Thirty U.S. mayors will converge on Philadelphia this week to talk open data, the digital divide and public-private partnerships at the Mayors’ Innovation Summit.
Hosted by the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM), the City of Philadelphia and Temple’s Fox School of Business, the seventh annual three-day conference will take place in Philly because of its many technology initiatives and because Mayor Michael Nutter is the president of the UCSM, said Fox School spokesman Brandon Lausch. The event is not open to the public.
Local speakers include Textizen cofounder and former Philadelphia Code for America fellow Michelle Lee, Temple University’s Urban Apps and Maps Studio director Youngjin Yoo and Second Muse hackathon organizer Michael Brennan. They’ll also be a part of a panel moderated by Technically Philly editor Christopher Wink.
