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 infrastructure, the built environment, and on changing the way we design, build, and operate civil infrastructure. 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. Our CEOs from cohort companies are our best validators of our value.
Rolling admission begins August 1, 2018 - with the program commencing in October.
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 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 potential 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.
We are the best at what we do and look to partner with the best infrastructure companies to make a real and lasting impact and grow great companies and change the world with meaningful and significant outcomes.more
