Milano Management hosted an ecosystem partner workshop to help Heat Seek, a civic tech venture, develop strategies and partnerships to scale up their impact. Heat Seek believes that low cost, scalable technology has the power to drastically improve the lives of millions of New Yorkers while increasing the efficiency of government service provision. They are providing a model for what a smarter city—one that embraces technology to solve real civic problems—can look like. 

Attended by tenants, tenant advocates, legal service providers, and student volunteers from the New School and Columbia University, the workshop was designed and facilitated by Isake Smith (Nonprofit Management student), and Sara Lara Salazar (Organizational Change Management student) under the guidance of Milano Management Chair Dr. Latha Poonamallee. Both Isake and Sara are in Dr. Poonamallee’s class on Organizational Change Interventions this semester.
