The Nordic Smart City Challenge is an initiative run by the Nordic Smart City Network and PUBLIC, supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers, inviting startups with brilliant new ideas to present and pitch innovative digital solutions that will address Nordic cross-regional urban challenges as we transition to a ‘new normal’ post COVID-19. The deadline for applications is 5th February 2021

The Nordic Smart City Challenge is part of Nordic Smart City Days, launched in collaboration between Nordic Edge and PUBLIC, which is taking place on 18th and 19th February 2021. This event is aimed at giving Nordic urban tech startups the opportunity to come together, network and meet public customers and investors.

The 18th February: The Nordic Smart City Challenge Pitch Event

Selected startups will be invited to pitch their solution to a panel of judges who will decide on a winning startup for each of the three challenges.

The 19th February: The Nordic Fund Event

The winning startups will receive mentoring from key individuals in the Nordic Smart City Network and will be fast-tracked to the Nordic Fund Event, where they will have the opportunity to pitch their solution and have 1-2-1 meetings with investors. Winning solutions will also be promoted on NordicBaltic.Tech and across PUBLIC’s, the Nordic Council of Minister’s and the Nordic Smart City Network’s channels.
