A Brooklyn business organization is offering a $5,000 prize for a Brooklyn startup working to make cities smarter.
Founders of smart-city startups have until the end of the month to apply for the competition, hosted by the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership.
The partnership is looking for startups that “have a new and original business venture that targets a smart city issue and is able to demonstrate potential for scale and positive impact.”
