Urbano Communities

Urbano Tech

Technology as a sector is fast-moving and every business is now impacted by technological revolutions in the way their services and their sectors are created and delivered.

Across Urbano’s communities are interested in and using the latest innovations to enhance how their client and themselves operate. From HRTech to FinTech, EdTech to PropTech, each sector with our communities is looking to understand how hardware and software, apps and systems can help them work leaner.

Our Urbano Tech Community includes companies who develop mobile applications, digital platforms and projects, including websites and back-end CMS systems, to those who  offer specialist and support services in IT, hosting, cloud and workplace systems.

Many Tech Community company members focus on hardware and software solutions and applications in VR, AR, animation, modelling, and CAD. Many of our Urbano Tech Community members offer services and products in construction and the built environment (Build) , especially in BIM (Building Information Modelling), an area we have long supported as we believe it offers specialist, smaller providers opportunities to offer innovative solutions to larger companies in the sector. This has now extended into Smart Cities, workplace design, wellbeing/wellbuilding, laser surveying, 3D modelling, project management and bespoke software development.

Urbano is especially useful for new tech start-ups who need support as they grow, including recruitment and HR advice (People), funding and investment (Finance), branding and marketing (Media) and a chance to benefit from the business experiences of others at our events.

MEMBERS NETWORKING ROUND TABLE

MAY 5th - 10.00AM

As we see the road to re-opening of venues subject to strict regulations, for the time-being we continue to bring our members together virtually and on-screen for our next monthly Urbano Members Networking Round Table. Lasting an hour, Urbano Round Tables are informal drop-ins, a chance to chat, meet new faces, and find new introductions. After checking in on everyone, we will disappear into break-out rooms where if you don't find someone interesting to talk to we will give you a full refund (it's free).

OPEN NETWORKING ROUND TABLE

MAY 19th - 10.00AM

Since 2002, we have organised hosted around 35,000 people at over 1,000 events. Our approach follows a clear principle, Urbano's Networking Pathway: Contacts, Connections, Relationships, Opportunities. Put simply, the more contacts you make, the more opportunities you will develop, but the key element is 'Relationships'.

Most opportunities come attached to a person and these are revealed through conversation. Hosted by Mark Herring's Connector-in-Chief, these online events are a mix of company and personal introductions, followed by interactive discussions designed to uncover areas where attendees can collaborate and find future business opportunities. After the event, Urbano members can access the full profiles and contact details of attendees through their Urbano Dashboards.

Robert will be dsicussing how biophilia and other innvovations around workplace wellness and design have informed The Spine's design and construction.
