Limited Capacity seats available

1 Hour Panel:

Moderated by civic innovation incubator Tumml,  this session examines how start-ups are reducing financial friction for small businesses and cities. OpenCounter goes to the core of the city/small business interface by simplifying the permitting and zoning process; their mission is to help “productize” economic development. Neighborly is opening up the field of municipal finance, taking the rather stodgy municipal bond into the social and crowdfunding age — which drives greater engagement and support for city projects. Together the panel will explore how start-up innovation and energy is being applied to small business, and the kind of problems that have been encountered along the way.
