NewTV Innovation Showcase: Howe Innovation Center

Sandy Lacey and Jay Sugarman of NewTV discuss the Howe Innovation Center: why the DisabilityTech market needs it, how it's grown and developed - and where it's going next.

Sandy Lacey, Executive Director of the Howe Innovation Center, sat down for a virtual chat with Jay Sugarman of NewTV to discuss why the Howe Innovation Center matters in the DisabilityTech space, how it’s growing, developing and operating today – and where it’s going next.

While we encourage you to take in the whole conversation – about DisabilityTech, accessibility, inclusion and more – Jay and Sandy covered a lot in their 30 minutes together, so we’ve broken down the hot topics for you via the following time stamps. (Closed captioning and a transcript are available on the YouTube recording.)

Stay in the conversation

Innovation can’t happen without all of us. Together, we can solve real accessibility problems.

If you want more from-the-front-lines perspective on what’s happening across the DisabilityTech market, join the Howe Innovation Center community. You’ll get members-only access to resources and insight that’s not available anywhere else, including our white paper, Defining DisabilityTech: The Rise of Inclusive Innovation.
