NYCx Challenges

Communications Home Feature Urban Informatics

New York City has launched NYCx, a program that invites both local and global entrepreneurs, start up companies, and community organizations to use New York City as a testing ground for ideas and technologies that can positively impact all New Yorkers.

NYCx’s Challenge Program seeks creative technology solutions to address several targeted problems in urban life that include 1) how best to affordably deploy high-speed wireless connectivity, 2) ways to reduce litter and increase recycling rates, and 3) how best to support safe nighttime use of public spaces and increase use of neighborhood corridors.
