Each cohort includes up to 10 startups of varying sizes and missions but with one shared goal: reimagining city life. Throughout the program, cohorts are mentored in areas crucial to their success. The program culminates at Demo Day which serves as a powerful launchpad for startups, allowing them to showcase market-ready prototypes and products to an audience of investors, thought leaders, press and influencers.
URBAN-X 09 companies are working to reimagine infrastructure for micromobility solutions and energy. They are using intelligent tools and data analytics to improve public safety and decarbonization. They are making it easier for housing developers to close on loans, making sure those properties are energy efficient, and making sure tenants feel connected and in touch with each other. They are producing renewable hydrogen to reduce carbon emissions.
URBAN-X Cohort 07 companies are working to reimagine infrastructure; for electric vehicle charging, for wastewater systems, for drone transportation, and for the cold chain that our 21st century food system relies on. They are taking new approaches to finance to make energy efficiency retrofits more ubiquitous for those with the greatest need. They are commercializing nanotechnology inspired by Butterfly wings to make the air we breathe cleaner. And they are using new tools to improve inefficient construction processes, reducing time, cost, and material for better buildings around the world.
URBAN-X Cohort 6 companies help drive efficiency in buildings as well as our water and electrical infrastructure by providing intelligent planning and analytics tools. They make video security compliant and transparent. They bring the power of play to every place in the city and make affordable food accessible to more people. They develop tools that improve the safety of first responders in buildings and on roads.
URBAN-X Cohort 5 companies make getting around the city easier by providing last mile mobility free of charge and by making access to electric vehicles easy. They bring flexibility and transparency to the construction industry by simplifying equipment management and by offering scalable robotics solutions. They mitigate waste and increase efficiency in waste handling and they develop new solutions that make residential air conditioning more sustainable.
URBAN-X Cohort 4 companies help mitigate risk and provide assurance in the urban environment by bringing transparency to the residential real estate market, predicting the probability of traffic accidents, providing real-time insights into construction projects and by better protecting cyclists through the use of next-generation materials. The Cohort 4 startups are Avvir, Clearroad, Open Data Nation, Park & Diamond, Sapient Industries, Rentlogic and Campsyte.
URBAN-X Cohort 3 companies build high performance sensors for autonomous vehicles and stratospheric imaging platforms to collect geospatial data. They help monitor and manage roads with AI, turn construction sites into efficient manufacturing floors and networks of buildings into virtual power plants. The Cohort 3 startups are Lunewave, Swiftera, Roadbotics, Good Goods, Hosta Labs, Qucit, Blueprint, Upshift and Versatile Natures.
URBAN-X Cohort 2 companies build human-electric cargo trikes for last mile deliveries, provide wearables for haptic navigation to the blind and visually impaired and offer platforms that quantify the usage of indoor spaces and systems that maximize fleet utilization for ride-hail services.
URBAN-X Cohort 1 companies make growing food in cities more enjoyable, disposing of food waste more sustainable, provide umatched operational intelligence to municipalities and deploy sensors that provide real-time actionable insights on the street level.
