The Urban Organism

More than just a digital city, a smart city can be likened to a biological system. Akin to a living organism, each part impacts on one another to perform functions.

Coined the urban organism, smart cities ensure interoperability between various systems for it to be agile, flexible and sustainable. We're creating a whole new world of possibilities today.

In partnership with

Leading Smart Cities Startup,
INVESTOR AND CORPORATE INNOVATOR ECOSYSTEMS
 
 
 

Agenda

One-to-One Meetings

Most conferences leave building connections to chances. Here, we give you a contact list so that you can arrange for meetings in advance and personally introduce you to decision makers that are relevant to you.

Actually Useful Panels

Our panels aren't about high level, abstract discussions. We ask the panelists on-the-ground, practical questions that you would have asked yourself. Come get your inspirations here!

 
Corporate Innovator Network3 Created with Sketch.

Corporate Innovators Network

We are creating the first ever ‘Corporate Innovators Network’ as part of the Summit to connect corporate innovators not only to disruptive startups and new technologies, but also to other corporate innovators globally. Reach out to us at summit@igloohome.co for more information.

Time Travel

We don’t just tell you what smart cities are. We create a showroom to let you see, feel and experience what living in the future is like.

Incentivized Referral Mechanism

Many companies target the same audience even though they may be non-competing. Instead of everyone striving to connect to the buy side on their own, we’re creating an incentivized referral mechanism where participants get to tap on the mega-network based on their contribution to the ecosystem. For every buy side that you introduce to the Summit, we will manually introduce you to two decision makers of your choice. We created this give-and-take combined with six degrees of separation sort of approach to allow for a more efficient expansion of relationships and facilitate greater deal closures.

 

 

Government Entities, Corporate Innovators, Investors, Media and Everyone Else

Sick of going to conferences and seeing the same old stuff from the big names? This Summit will show you the disruptive startups, often overshadowed by the big budgets at conferences, and help you find that hidden gem.

Why You Should Participate as a Buy Side, Investor, Media or Industry Participant

  • Discover the Hidden Gems
    Most conferences are saturated with propaganda from the big names. This summit focuses on filtering out the noise to help you find the best, relatively undiscovered startups, products, and technologies. Get exposure to the full range of innovative solutions across the smart cities supply chain and know the disruptive startups before others do.
  • Be a Part of This Exclusive Group. Connect to the Right People.
    Connect not just to the startups, but also the key people and companies along the smart cities supply chain. We’ll give you a contact list/who’s who guide so that you can arrange for meetings in advance and even manually introduce you to decision makers that are relevant to you (tiered access).
  • Actually Useful Panels
    Our panels aren’t about high level, abstract discussions. We ask the panelists questions that you would have asked yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Why is igloohome, a Startup, Organizing a Summit? What’s the Difference from Other Conferences?

As a startup, igloohome knows that most conferences leave connecting companies to the right people to luck. Buy side companies are constantly bombarded by what the big players offer but what they are looking for are new, disruptive ideas. Instead of waiting for others to solve our problem, we decided to use this summit to bridge the gap by making the connection process more efficient and facilitate deal closures for participants. Instead of trying to seek out connections one-by-one, we link up the different communities and ecosystems to build a mega-network and allow participants to tap on the mega-network to form their own relations.

 

What’s different about your “connection process”?

We got inspired by six degrees of separation and created an incentivized referral mechanism. Probably the first of such implemented at a Summit, one's access to the network depends on the resources (in the form of connections, funding or others) one shares with the community. The more valuable the connections or resources one brings to the ecosystem, the more one can tap on others' relationships and expand their own.

 

Is this Summit about igloohome? What is igloohome's role in this Summit?

No, the Summit isn't about igloohome. The Summit is a private sector initiative backed by government entities and industry bodies. igloohome is leading the initiative but happy to include anyone who wants to partner or get involved. Reached out to us at summit@igloohome.co!
