Led by the New Jersey Innovation Institute and the City of Newark, with generous support from the Newark Downtown District (NDD), Brand Newark is a unique, open platform for innovation. Part of the MetroLab program, innovators from all over can submit ideas and solutions that add functionality to BrandNewark for testing and evaluation. We will improve the quality of life in the city, together. The program will work with the City to deliver important information in the moment and it will help local businesses and institutions to tell their story.
BrandNewark will be a utility that helps City agencies and departments deliver timely communications. It will help centralize and analyze data collected across the city at BrandNewark locations, thus providing leadership with essential insight on current conditions. It will provide ultra-fast, free wi-fi communications for all. It will be a valuable tool for local businesses and merchants to reach out to customers (this helps us pay the bills!). It will also improve other key city functions such as public safety, public health and well-being, transportation systems, waste management, and energy.
