4YFN Smart City Award

For the second year running, 4YFN will host an Award at Smart City Expo to globally expose emerging companies that have created high impact mobile solutions to enhance the well-being of citizens in their urban environments. Out of almost 90 entries from contestants spanning over 50 cities in 27 countries worldwide, they picked CitizenLab as one of the five most promising Smart City startups.

Startups that specialise in technologies, products or services within the smart city ecosystem, for example, in sustainability, ICT, urban planning, electric mobility, energy, environment, education and public safety were encouraged to apply. Enterprises could submit their proposals no matter what stage of development they were in, as long as they could demonstrate that their startup was already having an impact globally, socially or economically with the potential for growth.

Smart City Award finalists

CitizenLab (Brussels, Belgium) is a civic engagement platform that allows citizens to co-create their city with the city itself.  Citizens post, interact and vote on the best ideas and the city taps into the collective intelligence to become more responsive to the needs of the cities inhabitants.

Comodule (Tallinn, Estonia) is the OEM supplier of connected vehicle technology for bicycle and scooter manufacturers. They supply full connectivity technology stack including hardware for the vehicles, mobile application for the end-users and online data analytics software for manufacturers/fleet operators.

Energy Elephant (Dublin, Ireland) builds and explores energy data using artificial intelligence. Their mission is to help organisations make better energy decisions by organising and analysing their energy data.

Vessla (Oulu, Finland) has created a completely cordless IoT screen that supports wireless communication. It can replace posters, bulletin boards and printed paper labels and it consumes 99% less energy than LCD and LED displays.

WesmartPark (Barcelona, Spain) is like an AirBnB for drivers wishing to park their cars in the city. They connect private parking spaces with drivers so that residents or owners of the parking space can get extra revenue by sharing their space while drivers can park faster and cheaper.
