Launched in February 2020 during the opening of the XVIII National Meeting of Secretaries of the Environment of Brazilian Capitals (CB27), ICLEI Innovation will select ten startups from all over Brazil, which will have up to four months to create solutions that support innovation and sustainability in local public management. The platform will have an emphasis on sustainable urban development and entrepreneurship.
After the acceleration, investment and capitalization of the selected startups, the project will try the solutions proposed in the CB27 municipalities, testing the application of the technology developed in the cities and the scalability of the solutions for other municipalities.
The first stage of the acceleration program will take place around the urban green areas segment, in order to strengthen the management and sustainability of cities and promote green spaces and the adoption of solutions based on nature, which generate measurable results.
