The Geo-spatial technology is already becoming a darling of the business world. Think about more direct business models such as Uber, Sendy, OkHI , services led models such as Google Maps services or software based companies such as Esri. Businesses are fast adopting location-based services and monetizing them. Over the past 18 years, that Willy has worked in the industry, he has definitely learnt a thing or two about how best young innovators in this field can take advantage of the fast moving wave. 

Join us for this Fireside Chat over a lot of coffee or beer as we learn from Willy's experience.
