Registration & Networking Breakfast


Opening Keynote Jeremy Goldberg, Deputy CTO and Managing Director, NYCx, City of New York


Special Presentation on the Benefits of Transparency for New York City & State by Silvina Moschini, Co-founder & President, TransparentBusiness

One contractor recently overbilled New York City over five hundred million dollars on a single project by inflating billable hours. Transparent verification of billable hours would protect the city and the state from such overbilling, saving taxpayers billions of dollars at zero cost. Silvina Moschini will discuss this and other benefits of transparency for the city, the state and NY-based businesses.


    Connecting New York through Collaborative Innovations and New Business Models

    We speak to those responsible for driving technological collaboration among governments, partner companies, strategic suppliers, and universities to create game-changing innovations that effect NY’s communities. From net neutrality to the future of transportation and promoting tech literacy, New York lawmakers face a lot of important decisions in the coming years.  How do New York officials send the message that they are open to technology, while balancing the needs of the employers and employees whose industries are being disrupted?
