New to Smart Mobility Summit Lisbon 2017, we are introducing the Smart Cities Startup Challenge, in partnership with Beta-i, to provide the opportunity for startups focused on Smart City innovation and technology to give a 5-minute pitch to delegates at the event. If you want a platform to tell your story to industry specialists – from operators and technology companies to policy makers and service providers ¬– then sign up for this unmissable opportunity. Tell your story and network with industry specialists and decision makers.
Smart cities and the IoT offer tremendous opportunities for innovative companies to provide solutions for urban transportation, health, energy, pollution, connectivity, security, and many other undefined applications in the future. However, it’s often difficult for young companies to get themselves heard and gain access to the resources they so badly need to innovate and grow. By partnering with the Smart Mobility Summit, and Beta-i, the Smart Cities Startup Challenge allows startups to pitch, engage and receive feedback from industry decision makers and thought leaders in this space. Participation is free, and could help you to build new partnerships and collaborations that can help to drive your business forward. What are you waiting for? Join us and share your story.
The Top 7 submissions for the B2B category and the Top 7 submissions for the B2C category will do a 5-minute pitch and have a 5-minute Q&A session with the judge panel. In addition, each finalist will be assigned a pitch coach who will help refine and prepare you for your presentation on Pitch Day.
Selected startups will be offered the additional opportunity to exhibit at the Smart Mobility Summit 2017 Exhibition and to receive one complimentary conference pass, valid for both days of the summit for € 300 plus VAT.
