Global Urban Innovators: A Community of Startups

Global Urban Innovators is a program of the New Cities Foundation that supports a community of trailblazing international urban tech companies. These startups and social enterprises creatively apply technology to tackle pressing urban challenges. The program chooses innovators for their radically new approaches to improving cities around the world.

Selected Global Urban Innovators win the opportunity to showcase their project at the New Cities Summit, the world’s leading event on urban innovation, taking place on June 7-9, 2017 in Songdo, South Korea.

At the Summit, they have privileged access to our global network of business and city leaders as well as exposure in the international media. We help Global Urban Innovators make cross-sector links to engage in results-oriented collaboration. This is an excellent opportunity for young startups to expand their positive impact in cities.

The application period is open until February 15th, 2017. Read more about the program here.
