Smart city managers are facing a daunting task. Depending on their size, location, population and numerous other factors, every city has different needs and requirements. And to make things worse, the smart city market is currently neither transparent nor digitalized, making it extremely difficult for them to see the forest through the trees and find the appropriate solutions for the problems their cities are facing.
bee smart city, founded in 2017, has one simple goal: to accelerate the development of prosperous and livable smart cities and communities around the globe. To this end, they provide an efficient toolset for smart city analysis and for facilitating collaboration and the successful implementation of the best smart city solutions available.
Their database currently features about 500 smart solutions, neatly divided in subcategories like Smart economy, Smart environment, Smart government, Smart living, Smart mobility and Smart people. Recently DataBroker DAO was added, showing cities all over the world the road to our decentralized marketplace for sensor data.

And soon a rating will be displayed on every solution in the bee smart city database, enabling you to quickly identify the best solutions available.

Seizing the opportunity to make your solutions available globally and increasing your visibility in the market by showcasing your portfolio of solutions, connecting with municipalities, companies and other organizations around the world and helping them to accelerate their smart city projects by acquiring them as new clients or partners.
