SmarterCape Summit

summitpicIf you live, work, or do business on the Cape and southeastern Massachusetts, you are part of an exciting new chapter in our history. Water, energy, and transportation challenges cry out for new ways of thinking …a new open-access 300-mile fiber middle mile network removes barriers & creates opportunities …challenges and opportunities surround us and it all adds up to a unique moment in time!

Cape Cod has convened two SmarterCape summits to spur new thinking and hear how others have re-invented their communities.  We have hosted speakers like Lou Zacharilla from Intelligent Communities Forum, Dr. Sharon Nunes of IBM Smarter Planet, Secretary Gregory Bialecki and Governor Deval Patrick of Massachusetts.

For SmarterCape Summit 3, held on May 13, 2013, we featured powerful plenary sessions on our key topics; environment, economy, development, education, healthcare, transportation, and government.
