Big data, small data. Data from wearables. Data is everywhere. But how can you use data to grow your business? The Internet of Things is another phrase you keep hearing – but how can your business leverage data from all these sources to gain advantage over your competitors?

Join us for this morning conference at Montclair State where we will explore the uses of data and Internet of Things to improve decision making in your business to grow your business faster and smarter.

Event also features a keynote address by Michele Brown, CEO ofChoose NJ and former CEO of the NJ Economic Development Authority.

This event is presented by Montclair State, Commerce & Industry Association of NJMeadowlands Regional Chamber of Commerce, and Newark Regional Business Partnership.

This event is a fantastic opportunity to network with new people, because it's a collaboration with three other organizations - there will be a lot of new people in the room who have not been at our Meetups in the past!

While all our events so far have been free, there will be a fee charged for this event. The cost is $25. The admission fee includes a free parking pass! To pay using a credit card, please register at:
