Smart Cities and ODS – Sustainable Development Goals set the tone for the initiative

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

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