> To: email@example.com
> Please join us for the Change Seminar this week on *Tuesday 1/23/2018* in *EEB
> *Who:* Martin Lukac, CTO of Nexleaf Analytics
> *What:** IoT for Development: Getting Data Flowing to Drive Impact*
> *When: *Tuesday, Jan 23rd, 12-1pm
> *Where: EEB 003*
> *Abstract: *At Nexleaf, we believe that most development interventions
> could benefit from access to useful, automated ground-up data. Everyone
> wants more and better information. Funders want it for M&E, multinationals
> want it for hitting targets (like the SDGs), and countries and NGOs want it
> to confirm that their undertakings are actually leading to improved
> Our approach is to create data-gathering technologies and applications
> with a strong use-case for people working on the ground. Then, with the
> data we gather, we can also begin to see system-wide problems, identify
> potential solutions, and test the effectiveness of those program fixes.
> That's how Nexleaf's approach leads to rapid iteration and verified
> improved impact. This talk will focus on how this approach informs our work
> in two sectors: global immunization and clean household energy.
> *Bio: *Martin Lukac is a Founder and the Chief Technology Officer of
