Session Title: Economics Meeting Ecology - Economically viable products solving environmental challenges

The "wow" in our presentation comes from having a simple idea with global impact: Solving the plastic bag litter issue. The presentation of the issues, (litter, risk to animals, the need to still get merchandise home from the stores, and cost considerations) in an objective manner, and how we are solving them with innovative solutions is an eye opener. We will provide the audience with the history of how ECOgrade was invented. We will enlighten the group on how we have not only developed a sustainable product which addresses a major environmental issue, but also a sustainable supply chain, gaining recognition for bringing back jobs to local bag manufacturers. We will also share some of the testing we have done on ECOgrade. Finally, we will provide an inside look at some of the new products in our pipeline which extend our current product offerings.

The presentation is at 10:30 at 233 Needham St., Newton.

233 NEEDHAM STREET is The Bank of America Building 

Enter the building driveway and drive past the reserved retail parking (for ARLENE & ROBERTA ETC.) and enter the attached multilevel parking garage behind the building.

Session Title: The Real World and The Commercial Internet of Things
There are lots of grand concepts out there for harnessing the Internet of Things, but is anyone actually using the IoT to their benefit in the real world, in day-to-day operations? Yes, in places you'd never expect! Visit with Powerhouse Dynamics CEO Martin Flusberg for interactive demos of multiple aspects of our SiteSage platform; a hardware and test facility tour (including our “test kitchen”, where you’ll see how embedded sensors are being used in cooking equipment); and a tour of our new offices. See examples of how non-tech companies like Arby's, Ann Taylor, and Five Below are actually leading the IoT revolution, driven by their bottom lines.

Special Message to Attendees:
Please enter via the glass atrium at 1 Bridge Street. You may use the outside or indoor stairs, or the elevator. Powerhouse Dynamics is on the second floor.

Session Title: Rethinking the Smart City - Where IoT Vision Meets Actionable Insights

This NewCo session will show our technology and how we've built easily customizable solar "brains" that can host different sensors. This will also involve a tour around our shop / office space. We will talk about the experiences at the Media Lab and working with city solutions that lead to the founding of Soofa. This involves the issues within a city and our general frustration with major incumbents being the only "smart city" companies. We will explain our plans and visions for our future direction, as well as gathering participant feedback around what they feel is an issue within the city or what aspects could use improvement. All throughout this questions and open discussion would be welcomed - we hope to create a good conversation among the group around the uses / needs of urban environments. This will definitely incorporate robust discussions about the future, our strategy process involves rethinking the way virtually any public space-based thing works. On a high level, we are very clear about our direction and issues being solved. But, we always wonder, is there a huge issue in cities that we are missing? Hopefully this session could encourage everyone to view the urban experience through an alien lens, rather than accepting things because they are "how things are". A good storyteller can draw people out of their everyday experiences and push them to consider regular things in entirely new ways.
