Introducing Smart Region Works, Our Digital Region Initiative
Our mission is to build and launch next generation IoT Infrastructure start-ups.
We are a new class of business accelerator to take the best ideas and inventions in civil infrastructure and technology, and transform them into high-performing growth businesses, that improve the livability, operations, and resilience of cities.
THE WORLD IS IN THE MIDST OF HISTORIC AND RAPID URBANIZATION.
More than half of the world’s population now lives in or near a major urban area. Global population continues to grow unabated, and over the next two decades the world’s cities will have to accommodate about 70 percent more residents within existing physical footprints.
A New Kind of Business Accelerator
The establishment of a new type of business accelerator—a business actuator—creates a unique opportunity to rethink infrastructure and reinvent it, as well as to de-risk commercialization and investments. By leveraging new technologies and an enhanced model for commercialization, we can significantly improve and revitalize the well-being, sustainability, resiliency, and livability of cities.
