Capalino Presents NYC Budget Workshop at Smart Cities Town Hall


On Monday, March 20th, Capalino Senior Vice President Ben Kleinbaum and Vice President Ashley Thompson presented an overview of NYC’s budget process at the Smart Cities NYC Town Hall event at Civic Hall.

Smart Cities NYC explores the intersection of technology and urban life, bringing together policymakers, entrepreneurs, community organizations, and academia to transform urban spaces and create real change.

In addition to an overview of the City’s Fiscal Year 2018 Preliminary Budget, the presentation focused on opportunities for companies and not-for-profit organizations to partner with the City to address challenges facing the urban environment of the future. The nearly 100 tech entrepreneurs, planners, not-for-profit leaders, and students who attended the event discussed the importance of effective advocacy to progress goals around growth, sustainability, resiliency, and equity.

Capalino is proud to be a sponsor of Smart Cities NYC ’17, which will be held from May 3-6 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
