"This year, Stamford Innovation Week is tapping into the themes of today's world and focusing on how companies and entrepreneurs are navigating the coronavirus pandemic and addressing social justice, inclusion and diversity," says Jonathan Winkel, founder Stamford Innovation Week and Executive Director of the Stamford Partnership. "The coronavirus pandemic has created a lot of uncertainty, but Stamford Innovation Week, and the businesses and ideas it showcases, remains very important for the future of our economy."
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, networking events have become more difficult. This is why events like SiW are important in helping to connect businesses, entrepreneurs, students, larger companies and many others.
