The URS Labs CEO, Mr. Matthew Cochran, will be briefing UAE Government partners in Dubai and Abu Dhabi this week to discuss his company's participation and experience with both WFP and Google Developers Launchpad and what comes next for URS unmanned logistics initiatives globally. Mr. Cochran has been very positive about his company's participation at the boot camp by stating, "URS Labs is honored to have been selected to be a part of this important project and we are very thankful to Mr. Bernhard Kowatsch, the Head of Innovation Accelerator at United Nations World Food Program and his amazing WFP team."
UN World Food Program (WFP) Innovation Boot Camps are often the first stop on the journey for many projects and start-ups. Over the course of five days, innovation and humanitarian experts help teams deep dive challenges, ideate solutions and refine project plans. Boot Camps combine innovation techniques such as human centered design with WFP's deep field knowledge and operational excellence.
URS Labs pitched to an audience of donors, partners and Accelerator management at the Google offices in Munich on March 8th. Mr. Cochran said, "URS is committed to continuing to work with both the WFP and Google Developers Launchpad mentor teams we have meet in Munich this month to secure funding, hands-on support and access to WFP's extensive field operations to provide URS unmanned logistics to achieve the zero hunger campaign WFP has targeted."
