The Make It In Brooklyn Smart Cities pitch contest showcases a top selection of NYC’s startups working to improve urban infrastructure and create smarter more resource-efficient cities through innovations in urban technologies.

Five finalists will pitch to a panel of judges. One winner will take home a $5,000 cash prize, and office hours with the Brooklyn Law School's Center for Urban Business Entrepreneurship (CUBE), no strings attached.

A $5 ticket gets you beer and snacks and time to network with NYC startups and entrepreneurs, investors, and folks from the Brooklyn tech ecosystem.

Do you have a Startup? Want to Apply to Pitch?

If your startup is contributing towards increased citizen engagement, hard infrastructure, social capital and digital technologies that make cities more livable, resilient and better able to respond to challenges, then we want to hear from you! Applications are open to startups that have a new and original business venture that targets a smart city issue and is able to demonstrate potential for scale and positive impact. We recognize that the smart cities topic is broad. We want to hear about urban technologies that are contributing towards improved and more resource-efficient air quality, food and agriculture, clean energy, fighting climate change, retrofitting and building energy efficiency, real estate technology, digital infrastructure, mobility and transportation, waste management, supply chain, big data and analytics, and more.
