PointOut recommends: NYC Neighborhood Challenge 2020 - Calling for Berlin companies!

NYC Neighborhood Challenge

New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and NYC Department of Small Business Services (SBS) in collaboration with, Urban Tech Hub @ Company (UTH), and CIV:LAB invite Berlin companies to participate in the Neighborhood Challenge: Tech Forward, an open innovation platform designed to crowdsource solutions to support the city’s commercial districts and small storefront businesses that are facing severe impacts due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

NYC is seeking proposals to pilot innovative, tech-enabled solutions from startups, technologists, and innovators from across the globe. The solutions will help small businesses recover as they seek to reopen safely and responsibly.

The neighborhood challenge will focus on four areas:

  • Digitizing business models
  • Redesigning establishment operations
  • Curb management and public space reconfiguration
  • Mitigating and activating storefront vacancies

Up to two winning proposals, per focus area, will be selected to develop and implement their proposed solutions. With an eye towards scaling successful solutions, selected Neighborhood Challenge projects are intended to serve as catalysts for long-term sustainability and positive economic impact in NYC.

Proposals are being accepted on a rolling-basis.
