A ROADMAP TO NEW YORK CITY
For the past 10 years, NYC has been a leader when it comes to smart city technology and with the aim to be an equitable city, it has developed a set of ambitious targets for the city as well as smart city projects in collaboration with residents and companies.
One of the largest developments can be found within smart lighting. Investments such as: 500K street lights to be replaced in NYC by smart LED lights by 2025, $7.5M in funding for Smart Street Lighting NYC and $104.1B NYC citywide investments planned between 2020-2029, create a demand for the best, well-tested and innovative solutions.
The US can sometimes appear very complex for foreign companies to enter, but with the new Smart City roadmap, Access Cities and Danish Cleantech Hub New York aim to provide a transparent and easy-to-read guide and overview to foreign smart city solution providers.
Among many things, the roadmap includes an overview of:
- Top 3 Smart City Trends
- Top 5 US Smart Cities to keep an eye on
- New York City’s Smart City visions
- An overview of must-know New York City customers
- Tips and trick to entry New York City faster
- …. and even more

FAST TRACK MARKET ENTRY BY PARTICIPATING IN A LOCAL CHALLENGE
One way of understanding a market potential for foreign companies, is to identify a local challenge within a city. The idea behind participating in a local challenge is to fast track companies’ market entry by applying specific solutions to solve the challenges in collaboration with private developers, City agencies and so on.
If you are a Danish start-up or SME, you are invited to join Danish Cleantech Hub and Gate 21s new challenge program.
