You are invited to attend a FREE lunch to discuss how Montgomery County can compete to receive assistance from WHIN (http://whinsmartregion.org/index.php/updates)
Lilly Endowment Inc. has approved a $38.9 million grant to Northwest Central Indiana Community Partnership Inc. to help the Wabash Heartland Innovation Network (WHIN) create and implement a plan to foster a prosperous economic ecosystem in northwest central Indiana.
WHIN’s goal is to make the 10-county region, which includes Benton, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Fountain, Montgomery, Pulaski, Tippecanoe, Warren and White counties, the global epicenter for agriculture and nextgeneration manufacturing using the sensor- and digital-based networks known as the “Internet of Things” (IoT).
IoT connects a wide range of services, products and devices to the Internet and is a rapidly growing resource for companies seeking valuable data. For example, IoT technology helps manufacturing companies track inventory, expedite deliveries and more efficiently schedule equipment maintenance.
Roy Vasher, from Ford and Toyota will lead the discussion.
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Eastern
