Session Description: August’s NewCo presentation will be led by CEO Jason Johnson and will include a tour of the design and prototyping studio. Industrial designer Yves Behar has an unrivaled eye for design, allowing the August smart lock to be developed into a product that brings style as well as security. Johnson will take his audience through a discussion of the role of competition in innovation, answering the question: how are August’s competitors fueling his company’s innovation curve and assisting in the adoption of August’s technology?
