Meet the 27 startups that are ready to make cities smart and sustainable

X-Europe cohort number four: Smart Cities and Sustainability kicked-off last week with the open call winners.

After the open call closed on the 30th of April with 197 applications, the X-Europe team drove an extensive, careful evaluation to select the 27 most promising Smart Cities & Sustainability startups to begin their journey with the programme.

The companies onboarded in a dynamic kick-off webinar where they had the opportunity to present themselves, meet the partners, and learn what to expect and benefit from the programme. There was also time for networking and to meet each other in one-on-one meetings.

What's next?

The upcoming months will be full of opportunities and learnings. It will start with the Acceleration Week at Design Terminal, where the founders will: attend several workshops on the topics of negotiation techniques (validating tips, remote working, and hiring best practices); meet and talk to experts or even to corporate or investor representatives; do networking among startups of the previous cohorts, and so on.

The training days with the Growth Tribe Community to learn and develop growth hacking and marketing skills come next, and, after, the programme offers two online workshops: "Startup readiness and business development training" and "Peer Learnings and 1-on-1 mentoring Exchange", to make our startups better prepared to scaling their businesses.

Each X-Europe startup will be assigned a mentor and participate in one-on-one mentoring sessions throughout the programme. Startups will also benefit from the corporate and investment matchmaking tracks. And, if interested, the incubation spaces of TNW and TechChill (in Amsterdam and Riga) will be available should the startups want to explore these markets.

At the end of the cohort, the startups will have the opportunity to showcase their solutions at the TNW conference, where they can meet investors, attend a pitch competition , and other workshops, talks and side events. It's going to be a rollercoaster of opportunities!
