Welcome to the 1776 newsletter—your pulse & insights on trends and startups innovating in industries that matter. Here you’ll find news on education, energy, health and cities, followed by events and classes where we hope to see you.
Before we jump into this week, I want to look ahead to November. Starting next week we’ll be featuring an entire series on privacy across regulated industries. We will kick off Monday with a long-form overview, and then dive into specific issues throughout the month, with expert contributors writing on topics ranging from startup data collection to what millennials expect when it comes to privacy.
Now, a look back: This week we were in Chicago for the Challenge Cup, and we saw some really interesting trends, which you can read about in our analysis. In addition, I was able to discuss the recently introduced D.C. High Technology Investment Authority Act with Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie about how it will affect the city and its entrepreneurs.
