IEEE wants to help you win $100,000.00.

Every growing city is challenged to provide city services, transportation, clean energy, and affordable housing in a rapidly changing world. As one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, Austin is no exception. While technology isn’t the answer to all of our problems, it’s hard to imagine how we can overcome these chase challenges without leveraging tech. Capital Factory has teamed up with the Austin Tech Alliance to give one tech startup a $100,000 investment and assistance launching in Austin.

We want to transform Austin into the city of the future and we’re fortunate to have such an incredible partner to work with on this initiative. Austin Tech Alliance is a nonpartisan, member-based nonprofit with a mission to promote civic engagement in Austin’s tech sector. Part of their focus includes advocacy promoting the use of use tech as a tool to help solve civic challenges. This leads ATA to work with internal and external partners to develop, test, organize, and encourage innovative projects with the goal of fostering a culture of innovation within and around the City of Austin.

The winner and the runner up get a Golden ticket to pitch at the $100K Smart City Challenge.
