Venture Smarter launched the 2018 Smart Infrastructure Challenge to empower communities of all sizes to build better places to live, work, and visit. The inaugural challenge received submissions from 69 regional teams proposing 89 projects across four response tracks: Smart and Connected Development; Smarter, Safer Streets; Critical Infrastructure; and Next Generation Infrastructure. Competing for $50M+ in project financing and support, challenge finalists took center stage to deliver shark tank-style pitch presentations at the second annual Smart Regions Conference, where Greater Cincinnati Regional Smart Transportation was named the champion of the ‘Next Generation Infrastructure’ track.
