The new platform will enable an effective collaboration between city representatives, companies, investors, and top smart city experts locally and internationally. It will also help various city stakeholders to better coordinate and manage smart city projects.
The way it works is that on one hand, the cities can find and get in touch with the right investors, experts, and businesses regarding the most relevant solutions and financing available. On the other hand businesses and smart city experts are able to place and promote their products and services on the platform.
Today, already 3.5 billion people live in cities. Thus, tackling urban challenges is important so that cities can continue creating jobs and prosperity without depleting land and resources.
