Get Ready: AI4Cities Bootcamp
24 August 2020 - 15 January 2021
Starting on 24.08.2020, AI4Cities and Industryhack are opening the registration to the Get ready: AI4Cities Bootcamp. This participation coaching/bootcamp is directed to all interested startups, SMEs and bigger companies who are both able to design innovative solutions applying the use of AI and motivated to participate in the pre-commercial procurement (PCP) process
The Get ready: AI4Cities Bootcamp will be organised as the first step or phase 0 of the PCP process to coach motivated participants to write their best applications yet for upcoming tender. The aim of the bootcamp is to coach and spar participating teams about their preliminary solution ideas and application process. During Phase 0 feedback of the tender qualifications will be collected, so participants will have an opportunity to impact on the content of the tender.

All applications will be reviewed after the deadline and all applicants will be informed. Number of teams to be selected in each of the challenges (energy and mobility) will be announced.
If you are interested in participating in the Bootcamp, but don’t have a team, you can participate in the Matchmaking event. Industryhack will organise two matchmaking events: one before co-creation days and one before request of tenders
Participation to this Bootcamp is free. The teams are expected to work full-time on the coaching/sparring during the co-creation day (1 day). Teams will have several mentoring sessions throughout the day. Teams will be asked for feedback and teams can get written feedback to their solution.
In January the final Coaching webinar will be organised, where teams have opportunities to ask about the upcoming tender. Participating in the webinar is voluntary but highly recommended.
