The beta community serves a fraction of the Venture Smarter ecosystem - which represents thousands of subscribers, hundreds of businesses and organizations, and dozens of customers and partners working together to build better places to live, work, and visit.

On the community portal, users organically connect with each other, discover opportunities, create and join teaming and interest groups, and explore industry insights. Val, who is powered by artificial intelligence, has also been working to actively to connect users to each other, opportunities, resources, and solutions based on their profile settings. Val is young, but learning fast to be "your smart cities personal assistant."
