What is SmartCityX

SmartCityX is a global open innovation program in which large corporations representing various industries and startups from around the world collaborate to co-create high-value services and applications from the perspective of consumers, not just from the standpoint of industry and technology. This is a global open innovation program.

 

We will accelerate the study of business co-creation between large corporations and between large corporations and domestic and overseas startups, and promote DX from the consumer's perspective, which will be the driving force behind "Society 5.0 x New Normal". We aim to create a society in which people can make choices that meet their individual needs and realize a variety of happiness.

With a common vision of co-developing the "city of the future," SmartCityX takes a diverse, people-centric approach in identifying next-generation technologies that can enrich lives and create more equitable and inclusive communities.

SmartCityX places an emphasis on six core verticals:

 

1) Consumer Products & Service

2) Mobility

3) Smart Building

4) Sustainability & Climate Change

5) Connectivity & Infrastructure

6) Social Innovation

 

These pillars unite corporate and consumer interests and embody the hope we all share for making cities more livable, resilient and sustainable.

 

Application

 

We are looking for the best, most innovative ideas from around the work to shape the future of cities. Startups of all stages are welcome. We are looking for ideas, prototypes, demos, commercialized products, and more, from all stages of development.
