You read that right! Through partners at LeadingCities, Automedi is giving away not one, but two fully funded pilot deployments of it's first of its kind Circularity-as-a-Service platform for plastic circular microeconomies.
In December 2022, Automedi was delighted to win the QBE AcceliCITY city resilience challenge 2022! QBE AcceliCITY is the world's premier #GovTech accelerator. Automedi was selected as winner of the challenge from over 550 world-class entrants. With it came a $100,000 funding prize to launch a pilot of its service into cities to rapidly decarbonise and turn municipal plastic waste into products at the touch of a button!
AcceliGOV: The prizes!
This year, we begged and pleaded and managed to convince the LeadingCities team to have two prizes, not just one. That means as a city, you have two ways to work with us.
Directly - pilots will be run and contracted directly to cities. They will receive $70,000 directly, on top of 5 finalist consultancy prizes
Through tier-1 suppliers - Cities or tier-1 suppliers with good relationships, with at least one year left to run on an existing contract, can apply to host Automedi clusters on their behalf
