Application Deadline: Innovate Durham
The City of Durham, North Carolina is excited to announce a new pilot program to bring innovative ideas into City Hall and allow local entrepreneurs and startups to beta test products and services. The Innovate Durham program will open up the city’s resources for entrepreneurs to develop, test and scale innovative solutions to improve city operations and solve community problems. The 12-week program will grant access to city data and infrastructure while providing a testbed for products or services.
As a significant client and testing ground, the city gives entrepreneurs a valuable use case for their products and services. This exposure can potentially help attract new investors and clients. Participants will get access to city resources and networks, as well as mentoring and guidance from a city champion. In return for providing a valuable testing ground and special access to city resources to selected entrepreneurs, the city hopes to learn about new technologies and approaches to improve the delivery of services or provide savings to Durham residents.
