DataCity is a global innovation program that brings together cities, companies, and startups to address city challenges and develop solutions to build sustainable and efficient cities, using data and technologies.


What we address
 

Cities are now host to half of the world’s population, and are responsible for 70% of CO2 emissions, largely originating from transportation, energy output, building management, and other critical infrastructure-related sectors. DataCity World is a global innovation program aiming at putting the best startup acceleration practices at the service of cities. City leaders, companies and startups have a unique opportunity to leverage a proven, data-driven and agile approach to resolve common challenges.
