Smart City Works will also serve as a unique new vehicle for advancing innovation in mature and established companies. New and promising ideas are identified by industry on a daily basis. Sadly though, innovation and commercialization, particularly disruptive innovation, is not readily fostered within so many established civil infrastructure companies. To overcome this, our acceleration services are also being offered to leading civil infrastructure companies (architecture, engineering, construction). In essence, Smart City Works can and will act as a skunk-works for industry. Mature companies with an interest in advancing internally developed technologies, products, or solutions can now run them through a customized Smart Cities Works program in an efficient and reduced risk manner.
This unique aspect of our acceleration services is in addition to the ability of industry partners to participate in Smart City Works as an ecosystem partner, and provide mentoring and real-world understanding of current challenges and business opportunities for cohort companies. Working side-by-side cohort companies, industry partners can significantly benefit through these interactions with cohorts, and in doing so, gain a unique perspective and insights into the latest ideas and direction of new technologies, as well as potentially develop early opportunities for procurement, licensing, or acquisition of emerging technologies ahead of competitors.
