Will You Take The Challenge?

The Colony 5 Civic Tech Challenge wants potential Idea Leaders to think and design “into the future” and consider how their businesses will interact with technologies like the Internet of Things, Wearables, Driverless cars, etc.  For example, if you’re opening a chicken shack, maybe you deliver orders via drone.
