Nokia and Smart City Capital join forces to foster smart city projects in Canada
Companies to offer funding packages coupled with an ecosystem of pre-vetted partners to help accelerate the adoption of smart city initiatives
Effort is intended to enable communities to more effectively leverage resources from Infrastructure Canada's Smart Cities Challenge program
Shawn Sparling, Head of Enterprise Sales, Canada for Nokia, said: "Funding is a major stumbling block for government entities embarking on the journey of a smart city transformation. With our partner Smart City Capital, LLC, we bring our global expertise and the capital necessary to successfully execute and deliver smart city projects, across Canada."
Oscar Bode, CEO, Smart City Capital, said: "Nokia's growing expertise in smart city deployments and project management, coupled with our strong funding base and innovative funding model, puts us in an ideal position to help simplify, expedite, and increase the adoption of smart, safe, and sustainable smart city deployments throughout the country."
The project builds on Nokia's strong track-record supporting smart city initiatives worldwide. It also highlights the progress of Nokia's strategy of expanding its customer base outside of the traditional telecommunications sphere, a key focus of the company.
