Our very own Ryan Mannion presented as part of the White House Innovation for Response and Recovery Initiative Demo Day. The Administration created the initiative
post-Hurricane Sandy as a way to bring together innovators and members of the disaster response community. It tasked these individuals with an important call to action: to brainstorm and develop a breadth of services that can empower residents and provide critical assistance in the aftermath of a disaster.
There were numerous participants from both the public and private sectors, including Microsoft, Airbnb, Google, Twilio, NPR Labs, Appallicious, Civic Ninjas, FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Association), EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), and the DHS (Department of Homeland Security).
Here is the video of Ryan's presentation:
