The rising complexity of modern-day cities calls for innovative methods of collaboration. The challenges at hand are best tackled in a co-creative framework. A smart city needs smart citizens – and smart companies - to lead the way towards a sustainable future, where technology will enable significant progress, while still relying on humans to come up with the solutions.
In our goal to develop smart city solutions, Simac ICT Belgium has become a supporting partner of Watt Factory, a lively community of entrepreneurs and creatives focused on Smart Cities & Climate Change. This dynamic start-up hub runs a unique Smart City Accelerator in collaboration with The Beacon (www.thebeacon.eu) and the City of Mechelen.
Simac ICT Belgium supports Watt Factory because we believe in the power of innovative start-ups to find cutting-edge solutions to present-day issues. With our existing expertise in Internet of Things we collaborate with other members of Watt Factory and hope to find new and exciting ways to bring a true smart and eco-friendly city to life.
The Watt Factory 2019 Programme will focus on Smart Mobility, Smart Energy & Smart Buildings. Want to join this dynamic community of smart companies? Contact Watt Factory at https://wattfactory.be/en/contact/ or fill in the start-up form: https://wattfactory.be/en/accelerator-programme-application/.
