Entrepreneur in Residence: Co-founder of a Startup in Healthy Urban Living / Smart Cities
More and more people live in urbanized areas, making public health an unprecedented challenge for the future. By 2050, 66% of the world population will be living in urbanized areas. Living closer together, brings about challenges in terms of health, urban living and mobility. What do our cities look like in 30 years? How smart will they be? Nowadays, many new business models are influencing our lives. Think of Swapfiets, where you can get a bike for a fixed monthly fee, or think of the many car sharing platforms for electrical cars inside city centers. Or just imagine we use our mobile phones to collect data on air quality, to get a real time insight in our cities’ air quality. In smart cities, our lives are made easier by apps that describe the movements of vehicles and people across the city in real time, and drivers will be notified of the nearest free parking space. The creative mind will see endless opportunities. Are you interested in healthy urban living and smart city technologies? Did you ever consider becoming entrepreneur of your own sharing economy platform? With the right mindset, people and the support of Holland Startup, you can be the co-founder of a successful startup…
