The “Best of X – Smart Region powered by ENTEGA” event was held on November 13th in Darmstadt, Germany. The event not only brought together young entrepreneurs and representatives from big industrial enterprises but also allowed them to collaborate on the development of innovative smart city concepts.

The rapid development of new technologies such as 5G, AI, cloud, and edge computing is accelerating the emergence of Smart Cities. We are in the early phases of an edge computing revolution, and it is important to support the exponential increase in the number of connected devices as well as the massive increase in data produced. The event’s major goal was to encourage direct collaboration and the creation of shared solutions between startups and the smart city sector.

“Our objective of the event was not simply to listen to the entrepreneurs, but to create projects directly from concepts in tangible projects with our staff in the expert divisions,” explains ENTEGA CEO Dr. Marie-Luise Wolff. This greatly raises the odds of success for innovative founders.”

The workshops were divided into three groups: “Automotive,” “Energy,” and “Smart Living.” Representatives from the globally selected startups; Evopark, Gerotor, Eluminocity, Boreal Light, Sigra, Sensfix, and Cabin Spacey were present. Sensfix was chosen as one of the top ten companies to cooperate on repair and maintenance solutions for smart city applications by the German energy company ENTEGA.
