Being identified as a digital innovator who is building the next generation of smart city technologies is important to many corporate brands. For them, ensuring future market demand will be highly dependent on promoting the growth of a comprehensive smart city ecosystem including, smart services and vehicles, data storage, geospatial modelling, and high-quality data analytics. Corporations who are looking to develop new digital product offerings can find SMEs on Nakoudu to partner with and build new digital solutions at a lower cost, with less risk and in a shorter timeframe than any other method. To build and maintain these relationships Nakoudu will provide regular proactive outreach to showcase new technologies in each sector. We will also highlight award winning technologies, member whitepapers and speaking opportunities.
Smart City Innovators
Many cities are looking for innovative technologies to further their smart city aspirations. Currently the only way to find out about new technologies is through a variety of sales presentations. The Nakoudu platform allows cities to view a variety of local and global innovations and consider how they might integrate these offerings to deliver new revenue or bring together several innovations to address community deliverables from one initiative.
The inclusion of IOT, digital twins and a multitude of sensors means there is an extraordinary amount of data being created by government entities and communities for potential use/sale. Although this data is listed on government sites, Nakoudu will enable data creators to list available data beside the specific users in each category to build awareness and standardize the data format for all stakeholders.
Investors are typically focused on specific sectors and staged entry levels. The specifics of their interest will be shown on their profile. They are always looking for high quality deal flow. Nakoudu provides the opportunity to track new companies that are typically outside their view, and over time they can take strategic positions.
Nakoudu offers the ability to create and track deal flow and to consider technologies within the context of all other global innovations
