Description


Join IoT.ATL, Ponix, & New City Properties to help revolutionize the future of food | Tuesday, September 10th | 4 -7 pm | 725 Ponce De Leon



IoT.ATL is proud to take the next step in building resilient communities by connecting people, companies and technology to forge a stronger path for the future. On September 10th, partners from IoT.ATL, leaders in smart city technology, and community mavericks will converge at 725 Ponce in Atlanta to celebrate the innovation of Ponix Farms and the opening of the first IoT.ATL Living Lab!

Ponix, a winner of the IoT.ATL AgTech Challenge, is identifying scalable AgTech solutions to address the need for resilient food systems and illuminate how technology can be used to solve the pressing social issues of our time. Through this lens, they will change the future of food and urban agriculture to benefit communities across the globe as the world urbanizes. Ponix is developing end-to-end local food ecosystems focused on reclassifying food as a utility, much like water or electricity.
