About Smart City Works
SMART CITY WORKS is the world's first BUSINESS ACTUATOR, a new class of business accelerator that can more rapidly move early stage ventures to commercialization, reduce risk for downstream investors, and improve likelihood of product uptake in the marketplace. We have a proven track-record of graduates and ventures growing and scaling the marketplace (see our website www.smartcityworks.io).
Our mission is to accelerate innovation and speed commercialization of solutions that improve the livability, operations, and resilience of cities. We are uniquely focused on urban tech -- infrastructure, the built environment, and on changing the way we design, build, live in and operate cities. Our Spring and Fall sessions are designed to propel graduating companies into the marketplace, endowed with proven products, and equipped with the skills to grow and compete for funding and market share. Graduating CEOs from our cohorts are our best validators of our value.
PROGRAM. Our 3-month intensive boot camp program begins with you. We work with you and your team to create a unique actuation plan tailored to the specific needs, challenges, and demands of your business. We connect startups with the best and most relevant mentors, investors, and partners from around the world for targeted courses and training, to support your specific corporate needs and commercial growth. We focus on business fundamentals and understanding the market, but also on overcoming technical hurdles. We also work to place the companies in pilots, test-beds, or with customers to validate and grow your business. You will participate in Thought Leadership Events, client events, city & community events, and other opportunities to improve your exposure to the market and help acquire customers and partners.
Each program culminates with Demo Day, a 1-day event with investors, end-users, and corporations to help you move to testbeds and pilot projects, and scale your business.
Rolling admission for our Winter 2019-20 cohort begins August 15 - with applicants selected on a first come, first serve basis until the cohort is full. Our Winter program begins January 21, 2020.
