About this Program
The mission of Dreamit UrbanTech is to make cities more sustainable, connected and efficient. More people live in urban areas than at any time in human history. Startups are critical to easing the growing pains of these places. Real estate tech, construction tech, IoT, smart cities, clean energy, ag tech, transportation, and AI are critical to the success of urbanization, and we want founders in these areas to join our 14-week growth-focused program.
Dreamit provides unparalleled access to coaching, customers, and capital.
- Integration into the $3B Tampa Bay Urban Redevelopment Initiative. One of the largest urban redevelopments in the US, this initiative is spearheaded by Strategic Property Partners, a joint venture between Jeff Vinik and Bill Gates' Cascade Investments.
- Hands-on, bespoke coaching. Founders will complete weekly meetings with Managing Directors to hone a go-to-market strategy, and pressure test ideas.
- A nation-wide customer network. Halfway through the program, startups embark on a two-week customer immersion roadshow, expediting relationship building with at least 6-8 enterprise-level clients.
- A network of investors. The culmination of the Dreamit experience is a two-week, bi-coastal investor roadshow during which startups pitch their ideas to top-tier VCs in New York, Boston, San Francisco, and Palo Alto.
Note: Startups do not have to relocate to Tampa for the full program.
