BACKGROUND: The Tomorrow Tour, inspired by Comcast NBCUniversal and organized by tech news site Technical.ly, visited five other U.S. tech hubs in the first quarter of 2016. The cities – Philadelphia, Denver, Miami, Chicago and Detroit – were chosen because they are increasingly recognized for their growing technology economies and are communities with customers that Comcast serves. The mission of the Tomorrow Tour aims to: Explore how tech and entrepreneur networks are shaping cities of the future; Build and strengthen collaboration across sectors that can fuel startup growth; Celebrate success stories, and identify best practices and areas of opportunity that will strengthen startup ecosystems; and uncover and amplify the best innovation and technology stories in each market.
