The Resilient City


Date: September 28

Location: CIC & Venture Café Rotterdam, Stationsplein 45, Rotterdam

We will be building resilient cities through startup solutions… and make it happen too!

Resilience is all about the capacity of individuals, communities, businesses, and systems within a city to survive adapt and grow no matter what kinds of chronic stresses and acute shocks they experience.  Worldwide a very relevant subject.

Resilience is in the DNA of Rotterdam. With Rotterdam being one of the 100 Resilient Cities we will be showcasing what resilience is about, challenging you to bring your ideas to create the necessary breakthroughs to take resilience to the next level, with potentially international links towards a resilient world.

The players in the Greater Rotterdam Innovation Ecosystem will team up and offer a Resilient City program in which you will get inspired, are offered a platform to make deals, make international connects, and get a podium to pitch startup solutions. You may expect a great mix of startups and young entrepreneurs; corporates and government to be present.

Also: the Friday night following this The Resilient City-day program the innovation ecosystem will open up the doors so you get to experience Rotterdam’s innovations and its resilience in a very special way: by bike! Check out this second event in Rotterdam “A Bite of Innovation” which is taking place on Friday September 29th.

Partners: The organizing partners of The Resilient City are Venture Café, CIC, Noorderwind, VPdelta, Rijkswaterstaat & Gemeente Rotterdam. And brought to you in collaboration with all partners in the Greater Rotterdam Innovation Ecosystem!
