Learn how to bring your smart city solution to the international market

As an entrepreneur, it’s only natural that you continuously strive to expand, innovate and grow your business. You might even feel ready to show your smart product or service to the world. These aspirations may lead you to debut your smart city solution in a foreign market, but there are some key questions to ask yourself before going global.

Amsterdam Smart City has joined forces with Amsterdam Trade (a programme of the Municipality of Amsterdam) to help growth-focused entrepreneurs tap into global business opportunities, facilitating their international ambitions.

We are pleased to invite you to attend our event on 29 September, which will cover the key factors to consider when seeking global expansion and growth. The event will bring together the smart city business community, active in themes such as such as water and waste, infrastructure and technology, the circular economy, citizens and living, mobility, energy, governance and education. Of course, any company with an urban development vision or smart innovation is welcome to join.
