IN 2020, TECHNOLOGY PREVAILED...
RESILIENT COMPANIES ROSE TO MEET THE NEEDS OF TWO CRITICAL INDUSTRIES
In 2020, COVID-19 wreaked havoc on public health, economies, and innovation ecosystems across the globe. Despite the storm, ten promising startups arrived in Hartford, Connecticut with tools to make a difference.
Their solutions addressed critical health and safety challenges posed by the pandemic, ranging from ways to help isolated seniors trapped in their homes, to indoor air quality devices that allowed businesses to resume in-person operations with confidence.
Against a sea of obstacles, these startups partnered with some of the largest corporations in the world to develop live use cases in the middle of the pandemic. Over the course of six months, these technologies aided assisted living communities, home care agencies, property owners and managers during the most challenging months of 2020. These partnerships demonstrated the true value of resilience in innovation.
This February 16th, join Greater Hartford's community of healthcare and real estate innovators for targeted demonstrations of these powerful technologies, each tailored to address your business's challenges or areas of innovation opportunity!
