Kansas City, MO announced Pomerol Partners as one of its seven partners for the 2016 Innovation Partnership Program. The program, in its second year, provides a unique opportunity for businesses to develop a use case and allows City Hall to explore, at no cost, how new technologies may improve City services in unique, forward-thinking ways.
Partners were selected using several criteria including the ability to support economic development and operations strategies such as improving quality and efficiency of City services and operations, creating new markets and jobs; attracting and retaining top talent; and improving economic vitality, social equity and environmental quality.
