Smart Cities and SDGs – Sustainable Development Goals 

The Smart Cities and the SDGs – Sustainable Development Goals will be the two themes that cut across all the moments of this bootcamp, whose sessions will be in English. On the one hand, it will seek to identify startups and projects linked to the areas of the incubator – the Smart Cities, which in some way improve the lives of those who live, work or visit the cities; on the other hand, it is intended that entrepreneurs develop sustainable and “future” businesses – which contribute to achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

This acceleration program will culminate with the selected entrepreneurs presenting their projects, worked throughout the Bootcamp, before a panel of national and international judges.
