“There was a time when urbanisation was considered as a problem but I think urbanisation must be considered as an opportunity”- PM Narendra Modi.
Jukka Kettunen of Finland, although sitting almost 4,000 miles away from India, shares the same thoughts as PM Narendra Modi as was revealed during the official launch of Pune smart city project in June 2016.
Head of Urban and Real Estate Development at Cityfier – an urban real estate planning tool – Jukka recently won the Smart City Bizhack event in Helsinki, Finland. The event was organised by GOInternational Finland, a Nordic international accelerator, to explore the untapped opportunities in the Indian market for Smart City innovation.
Also, Chhattisgarh state was announced as the pilot state and gateway state for Finnish Innovation in India at Smart City BizHack India, GOInternational Finland’s side-event at Slush’17, the annual tech conference held in Helsinki’.
Cityfier, a part of A-Insinöörit, is now gearing up to enter Smart City BizHack Chhattisgarh in March 2018, where it’ll be exploring B2G, B2B and B2C opportunities in India.
