In partnership with Arlington Economic Development, Smart City Works will hold a regionally-focused Pitch and Play to find the best public safety solutions that will support Arlington County’s economy by allowing a safe return to work and school.

Technology startups that will present their solutions in our challenge.

Eight technology startups from around the world will present their cutting-edge solutions to municipal post-COVID public safety challenges to an audience of Arlington government officials and other public safety, innovation, and community stakeholders from around the region. The event will take place virtually on November 10, 2020.

More than $1,500 in prize money will go to the winners as determined by the judges of the pitch competition.
