Learn how to Monetize Geospatial Technologies growth with Willy Simons at Startup Grind Nairobi Fireside Chat

Geospatial technology is already becoming a darling of the business world according to Laban in his Interview with Geosymp in March, 2017. Think about more direct business models such as Uber, Sendy, OkHI , services led models such as Google Maps services or software based companies such as Esri. Businesses are fast adopting location-based services and monetizing them. Over the past 18 years, that Willy has worked in the industry, he has definitely learnt a lot about how best young innovators in this field can take advantage of the fast-moving wave.

Having started out close to 18 years ago, Willy has amassed experience in providing business services in geospatial industry and will be sharing this experience as he appears at the Fireside Chat on the October 27, 2017 / 6:00 PM. This will include his journey through founding 3 Geospatial Companies, Oakar Services, Esri Eastern Africa and now Spatiality.
