The IQ Brew: Chris Simonds, Orchatect

Registration: https://www.meetup.com/RichardsonIQ/events/278307220/

The IQ Brew is a networking and educational series featuring short presentations from entrepreneurs, small businesses, innovation ecosystem builders, and subject-matter experts.

On Thursday, June 24 at 9:00am, hear from Rashmi Varma, founder and CTO at innovate5G Inc., a Richardson IQ company. innovate5G was established to open up the 5G ecosystem beyond traditional players and enable everyone to participate. innovate5G developed a platform – in5Genius – for application developers to test their 5G applications in a cost-effective, secure and pressure-free environment, and at their own pace. Whether it’s an idea for a gaming, industrial, or enterprise application, innovate5G is eliminating barriers for developers to test out their ideas- such as having to partner with a carrier or large OEM.
