In keeping with our tradition, Microsoft Cities and it's NYC-based director, John Paul Farmer, will once again sponsor our CUNY Tech Meetup's end-of-year event for the fourth year in a row - this year with a focus on City Tech. We'll explore technology's role in cities to address civic challenges. We’ll feature a lineup of dynamic speakers using and building technology solutions to improve citizen-centered city life. This year we've also partnered with the Ron & Kerry Moelis Social Entrepreneurship Program at John Jay College, which will serve as host in its beautiful space on West 59th Street.
