There’s more to Geospatial than just the Defense

Hey everyone— We’ve finally announced the lineup for our geospatial-focused Thursday Gathering! In collaboration with Cortex, the evening is full to the brim with national experts including the former Director of the NGA, Robert Cardillo, and leaders from 20+ national companies like Microsoft, 1904Labs, Lockheed Martin, ESRI, and Airbus (to name a few). Check the 4 keynotes from 3pm – 6pm in the lineup below

Like I mentioned, the geospatial discussion in St Louis is more than just defense and the NGA. Checkout talks from GeoSLU which will share how location-based technology can stop human trafficking or how one organization is countering wildlife trafficking.

Check the lineup below, which also includes some non-geospatial talks. 

Couple other items of note:

  • Innovation Hall (where startups can work for free) is now hosting office hours. Read more.
  • Venture School applications are now closed, but you can still apply for the fall class.
  • In an effort to create an environment best aligned with our credo, we are moving to 2 free drinks beginning March 5th.

See you Thursday!
