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).
Beginning in 2020, our program is fully immersive, fully virtual.
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. Which, today, puts an emphasis on COVID-19 recovery, decarbonization, cybersecurity, buildings, and urban mobility. Our Spring, Fall, and Winter 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 1:1 actuation plan tailored to the specific needs, challenges, and demands of your business. We focus on commercialization, investment, and understanding the market, but also on executive leadership and business operations. Our living lab network, gives you a more rapid route to market, through pilots, test-beds, or first customers to validate and grow your business.
