Please join the PNWER Congregate Solutions Accelerator for a virtual showcase event of the inaugural cohort. This event is the culmination of the 12-week accelerator program designed to bring innovative startup solutions to the travel, performing arts, tourism, and hospitality (TPATH) industries.
These companies have been working with Congregate and tourism industry partners, mentors, and other entrepreneurs throughout the PNW to better understand the needs of the travel and tourism industry and how to best fit their solution or product into the space. The inaugural cohort of companies ranges from medical devices, the AR and VR experiences, to no-code solutions for e-commerce – all centered on improving resilience in the TPATH sectors.
The accelerator and showcase focus on finding solutions to these four challenges, which were vetted by TPATH industry stakeholders from the region: • Workforce Solutions • Hybrid Experiences • Contactless Commerce • Immunity Verification
Come hear more about their innovative solutions and expand your network while supporting their ventures and bringing resilience back to the travel industry!
At this event, we will also reveal the primary challenges that form the basis of the second cohort coming this spring. Whether you want to support as an industry partner or apply to be a member of the cohort, you’ll find a great deal of information about how you can get involved!
Risk-Based Pandemic Management and Border Resiliency
FBC Event | Virtual | 23 March 2022
The recent COVID-19 pandemic has not only disrupted the entire global economy and the well-being of local communities; it has challenged existing risk models for pandemic management and the role of public institutions in delivering long-term and sustainable solutions. This webinar brings together former government ministers and public officials, border security and governance leaders, as well as public health and technology experts to discuss the path towards a more resilient U.S.-Canada border for the future. Some of the questions that will be tackled during the webinar include: (1) how can governments implement risk-based models of pandemic management to ensure greater border resiliency, (2) what are the tools currently in place to prepare for the next external threat and minimize disruptions to supply chains and the travel industries, and (3) is there a path towards implementation of a health preclearance model in the U.S.-Canada context?
