We are extremely happy to have made it to the top-50 as the only participant from the Nordics
Maarit Kahila, CEO of Maptionnaire
“The development of Maptionnaire began exactly ten years ago when we discovered a need for cities and consultancies to engage the public and to get input from local residents. The need hasn’t changed during these ten years. If something, the desire for developing smarter cities has increased the demand for community engagement solutions,” continues Kahila. “That’s why we are excited that our solution is being acknowledged. Building better cities together with the residents is and should be our mutual goal.”
The Lee Kuan Yew Global Business Plan Competition is organized by the Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (IIE) of the Singapore Management University. In 2021, the theme was ‘Reimagine Smart, Sustainable and Resilient Cities’. Over 850 submissions from 60 countries were entered into the competition this year. Maptionnaire was shortlisted among the top-50 teams.
