Why Smarter Cities Need Startups, and Startups Need Smarter Cities
Limited Capacity filling up

In just a few short years our world will be drastically different. Almost everything in and around us in our lives and our cities will be automated thanks to The Internet of Things (IoT) and the latest in Edge computing and communications technology. Steve Case, founder of AOL, calls this the Third Wave which is about “integrating the internet into every aspect of our lives in seamless and often invisible ways.”

This shift will have a profound impact for innovators, entrepreneurs, and startups as demand for products and services change as well as the workforce that is needed to support our hyper-connected cities of today and in the future. So where do you and your startup fit in to this new paradigm of smart city opportunity?

Casi todo lo que está dentro y alrededor de nosotros en nuestras vidas y nuestras ciudades se automatizará gracias al Internet de las Cosas (IoT) y lo último en tecnología informática y de comunicaciones de Edge. Steve Case, fundador de AOL, llama a esto la Tercera Ola, que trata de "integrar Internet en todos los aspectos de nuestras vidas de manera transparente y, a menudo, invisible". Este cambio tendrá un profundo impacto para los innovadores y emprendedores , y las nuevas empresas a medida que cambia la demanda de productos y servicios, así como la fuerza de trabajo que se necesita para sostener y hacer funcionar nuestras ciudades hiper-conectadas de hoy y en el futuro. Entonces, ¿dónde encajan usted y su empresa en este nuevo paradigma de ciudad inteligente?

Cities Talking with Startups: A Collaborative Approach to Problem Solving (Room: Community Room B)
Limited Capacity seats available

Cities are a key to both our technological and sustainable future and a city putting a challenge on the table and inviting startups to help co-solve a problem makes for interesting startup opportunity.

During LSW’18 we have introduced you to entrepreneurial ecosystems, lab cities, cities as incubators, and the growing Smart City opportunities for startups. Let’s now have a conversation about how startups are working and collaborating with cities to co-solve some of our urban challenges. Together we can partner and innovate new partnership models, shared innovation and incubator spaces, deliver smaller real-world pilot initiatives and other approaches to fostering smart city projects that are truly meaningful.

It all starts with a conversation, working together cities and startups could make it easier for businesses to work with municipalities by running pilots before embarking on large-scale public-private partnerships. By engaging the private sector and startups in this conversational manner sparks innovation, rather than simply procuring off-the-shelf products and services.

So, come along and join this conversation between cities, the Colorado Smart Cities Alliance, and startups already having collaborative conversations. Las ciudades son la clave de nuestro futuro tanto tecnológico como sostenible y una ciudad que pone un desafío sobre la mesa e invita a las empresas startups a ayudar a resolver ese problema, la convierte en interesante para una empresa. Durante LSW'18, le presentamos ecosistemas empresariales, ciudades de laboratorio, ciudades como “incubadoras”, y las crecientes oportunidades de Smart City para empresas. Tengamos ahora una conversación sobre cómo las empresas startups están funcionando y colaborando con las ciudades para resolver conjuntamente algunos de nuestros desafíos urbanos. Juntos podemos trabajar e innovar nuevos modelos de asociación, espacios de innovación compartidos, ofrecer iniciativas piloto para el mundo real y otros enfoques para fomentar proyectos de ciudades inteligentes que sean verdaderamente significativos. Todo comienza con una conversación, trabajando en conjunto, las ciudades y las empresas startup podrían facilitar que los negocios trabajen con los municipios ejecutando programas piloto antes de embarcarse en asociaciones público-privadas a gran escala. Al involucrar al sector privado y las nuevas empresas se genera innovación, en lugar de simplemente adquirir productos y servicios disponibles en el mercado. Entonces, venga y participe en a esta conversación entre ciudades, la Alianza de Ciudades Inteligentes de Colorado, y empresas startups que ya tienen en el presente conversaciones o planes de colaboración.
