Bored of “smart cities” already, because you’ve heard all talk and seen no walk?
Join us for an evening to hear some of the revolutionary startups who are actually doing real things to deliver us smarter energy, homes and means of moving around.

If you’re a startup wanting to learn lessons from founders building like-ventures, come along! If you’re an organisation who would like to know how to quit less of the talking and start to engage better with such startups coming up with the disruptive solutions you need, come along! If you’re wanting advice on business models for running a sustainability venture, or just want to learn more and be inspired by ‘cool smart city stuff' (psst, these companies are hiring!), also please come along too!
