Smart Cincy is the nation's first regional smart city initiative and largest interdisciplinary and interagency working group of smart cities collaborators in the Midwest.

Late last month at the second annual Smart Cincy Summit and official launch of the 2018 Smart Infrastructure Challenge, Oscar Bode, CEO of Smart City Capital, led a workshop discussing the challenges cities face in moving from pilot to execution, and how new public-private-partnership models can accelerate and expand smart city development efforts.

As financing partner for the challenge, Smart City Capital will provide as much as $10 million to the winning project in the Smart and Connected Development track.

“That doesn’t mean that if we identify a bigger project and it would make business sense, that we wouldn’t support it,” said Bode, who added that there was as much as $3 billion set aside for the right projects.
