Open Call for STARTUPS and PROJECTS that can help cities thrive! is a special incubation/acceleration program specifically designed to support and invest in cities and startups that develop projects directly or indirectly related to smart cities to strengthen the social and economic fabric of the territory. was created with the goal of supporting and contributing to the progress of cities by attracting and retaining talent and entrepreneurs by providing different and alternative channels for access to investment and financing.

How it works

The project can be implemented in two ways

  1. Establishing a MOU with coworking spaces, incubators, accelerators and other entities that already exist in the city, working together to promote and dinamize smart city projects and creating a channel for potential investors in ideas, projects and business opportunities in a transparent and valuable way for the city and for startups/companies wishing to settle there.
  2. If none of the structures above exist in the city/territory, a protocol of understanding will be established with the municipal authorities for the installation of a ZOOM unit (which will include all the referred services).

Who are we?

The  project is an initiative of the ZOOM GLOBAL SMART CITIES Association. A non-profit organization that aims to contribute to the dynamization and effective development of smart cities around the world.
