Wearable Technology for Social Impact

Investing in Social Good

Today’s conversations surrounding wearables tend to diverge and converge around fitness and health, and it remains to be seen where the concentration will lie. While the act of logging exercise points or sleep hours are crucial elements of the health and wellness phenomena, there are even greater opportunities to apply wearable technology to other areas,including chronic disease prediction and prevention, social crisis, personal identity and security. As we expand the wearable conversations to emerging markets, the use cases multiply even further.

Join UNICEF, frog, Wearable World and other panelists on May 7 as we share and discuss the social impact that is possible in today’s wearable economy.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
