We are looking for the best ideas and offer innovative entrepreneurs and start-ups funding for the development of smart services and products. Together with the municipality of Eindhoven, TU/e and VolkerWessels we are launching the iCity Tender. A tender for smart city development with living lab Strijp-S as launching market.
