Columbus’ Smart City initiative is launching a startup accelerator, seeking applicants for 10 awards of up to $100,000 each to apply new technologies to old industries – such as self-driving cars in transportation or 3D printing in manufacturing – and make mid-sized cities run more sustainably and efficiently.
Singularity University, an innovation consultant that trains business leaders and runs accelerators, will operate the Smart City Accelerator starting in September – its first program outside its home base in Silicon Valley.
