CHICAGO, IL— Daniel O’Neil, executive director of the Smart Chicago Collaborative, says that there are many ways in which digital developers can create products that bring in revenue while, also, contributing to the public good.
One such project he’s overseeing is the Chicago Health Atlas — a mapping tool with information about various health conditions and access to resources online. Currently, O’Neil is working with a developer based at 1871, a technology incubator located in the Merchandise Mart.
