Smart City Global Scouting Tour

Connect now with the Dubai Smart City team at a city near you!

As part of our goal to identify the globe’s most promising Smart City startups, we are hosting virtual and in-person Office Hours and FastTracks across the globe!

Teams that have a personal meeting with our team are more likely to be invited to the final selection days, which will take place on December 9-10, 2019.

Who is eligible? 

Startups (post-ideation to pre-series A stage) with solutions in the following Smart City industries are encouraged to apply:

  • IoT & Connectivity
  • Urban Automation & Mobility
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Blockchain
  • Open City Data
  • Sustainable Cities & Living
  • Smart Government
  • Smart Retail industry

What are Office Hours?

Office Hours consist of an individualized meet-up between our team and your startup. You will have the opportunity to present your startup venture (in-person or virtually) and afterward get feedback from us. We will also share more about our Dubai Smart City Accelerator program. Each meeting will be 30 minutes.

What are FastTracks?

Come ready to pitch your solution, receive instant feedback from the Dubai Smart City Accelerator (DSCA) team and a panel of industry mentors.

The experience is extremely valuable for everyone attending: teams learn from personalized feedback they get as well as from feedback that other teams receive. As the event is informal, you will also have the chance to connect with the mentors and other participating teams from the local ecosystem.
