Getting smart about smart citie

Wow, 7,131 of you have read this.

The smart cities market offers startups a wealth of opportunities – the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills estimates that the global market for the design and deployment of smart city solutions will be worth an incredible $408bn by 2020.

Do you know any innovators that are working on smart city solutions and are keen to tap into this amazing growth potential? Send them our way.

Two of our smart city accelerator streams, Connected Home and Virtual Design & Construction, are still open for applications. The chosen startups will participate in a 12-week accelerator programme where they will be mentored and trained by experienced Canary Wharf executives and industry experts from other major players, like Intel and Autodesk. We have six accelerator streams in total, and the winner of each stream will receive a £50,000 cash prize and the opportunity to deploy their solutions on the Canary Wharf estate.

Are you the right company for the Cognicity Challenge? Or do you know an amazing startup that might be interested in helping to shape the future of the estate? Tell them to apply NOW so they can play a role in creating the city of the future, today.
