Open Call for Urban Challenge

Have you heard about the Urban Challenge competition that the West Midlands Combined Authority is running?

Urban Challenge is an open call competition for technology startups to develop new ideas to make the West Midlands a better place to live and work by pitching directly to the Mayor and the chance to work directly with officials from the West Midlands Combined Authority.

Startups will win a prize package worth over £20,000 (prize money and AWS credits) plus a guaranteed three-month pilot with the West Midlands Combined Authority, and support by Public in developing the proposition, pitch and sales strategy.

There are four challenges running, from Wellbeing, Housing, Youth Unemployment, Digital Citizenship. Read about the challenges on the Urban Challenge website and apply here.

The application process should only take an hour, and applications close on the 31st January, with awards being announced on 22nd March.
