Later this month Jim Lee of Wilmington-based StratFI will again share his annual insights on “what happens next?” at the monthly meeting of the Delaware Technology Forum.

This year, Lee will look at cities.

Cities are becoming important centers of innovation. Technologies such as autonomous vehicles, the internet of things, blockchain, and green buildings are going to make our built environments radically smarter, flexible, efficient, and livable.

Lee will look at how will cities evolve and change over the next fifty years? He will also discuss how Wilmington can thrive during the coming urban renaissance.

The forum event will be held on Jan. 17 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Delaware Technology Institute, Newark.

Event registration is $25 for TechForum members and $40 for future members. Walk-ins are welcome, but will be charged an additional $5 fee at the door. Click here to register.
