WHAT THIS PROGRAM IS ABOUT RE:THINK SMART TO BE MORE HELPFUL

Smart means more than automated and connected, it means clever, thoughtful and mindful - acting on this by considering first the impact on people, their relationships, preferences and environment.

A program for intelligent and practical solutions of living and working spaces. Solutions that take advantage of what electricity and connectivity have, to enhance and empower human lives by creating a responsive surrounding.

WHAT WE LOOK FOR

The program aims to find new solutions based on the synergies between humans, data and living spaces. Technology can acquire the art of understanding by creating the intelligence that a living place misses and making it more responsive to our needs.

We are looking for services and products to develop new business opportunities in the area of:
  • Smart living & working spaces
  • Smart city
  • Internet of homes
  • Households in a shared economy
  • Smart energy usage
  • Electrical intelligence in a modular setup
  • ENERNET
A good tips – bear in mind:
  • services over products preferred
  • modularity included

WHAT’S IN FOR YOU TO JOIN THE PROGRAM

  • Access to expert networks from two complex industries that can offer you the technology and business know-how needed to boost your startup.
  • An opportunity to see your idea turned into a Pilot Project implemented with one of the program’s sponsor: T-Mobile or innogy Poland.
  • Even more, support to accelerate the go-to-market preparation and commercialization of your the projects.
  • Cover some travel and accommodation costs incurred through the program.
  • Potential investment from hub:raum as well as from leading corporate venture funds and innogy Poland.
Those are just examples! Feel free to be creative and surprise us with your solution, which can change the place we live or work in.
