CBIA BizCast: What’s Next for StamfordNext?
CBIA BizCast host Ali Warshavsky speaks with StamfordNext executive director Wes Bemus about the nonprofit collaborative’s mission to invest in the start-up ecosystem and generate economic growth.
The state considers Stamford one of Connecticut’s four Innovation Places. State funding and grants are dedicated to turning the city into a data science ecosystem.
Bemus said that while Stamford has seen a lot of large corporate companies come and go, many of their employees want to remain in the city.
He said StamfordNext aims to provide resources for those who want to launch their own startup in data science.
“Looking 10, 20, 30, 40, or 50 years down the road, what are the companies doing with that data?,” he asked.
“How are they going to be looking into the massive sets of numbers and data from their customers and their clients and how are they going to benefit from it?”
“This has really shown that artificial intelligence and data science are the real future for how the industries will be successful.”
