H2- #RoadToSorrento: Smart Point travels to Italy for the G20 Innovation League!
This initiative, hosted by the G20 Italian Presidency, has also been organised and facilitated by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the Italian Trade Agency (ITA-ICE), the Italian National Innovation Fund (FNI-CDP Venture Capital) and SIMEST, in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of Innovation and Digital Transition.
The event will be hosted at various prestigious Sorrento venues including the teatro Comunale Tasso, or online via streaming sessions, in a mixed digital and physical format to allow all attendants to be present despite the current travel restrictions.
Once at the event, Tom and Ed will have the opportunity to attend many networking and pitching opportunities and meals, B2B meetings to create future possible partners, keynote sessions and more. They will also enter a competition to showcase how Smart Point's ground-breaking mobility solution for European cities can respond to and solve society’s ever-evolving needs with its disruptive technology with the potential of becoming one of the top 10 companies in the world to face the five main “challenges” currently being faced by humankind and the international trade opportunities that these challenges represent.
H2- #SmartMobility: the top 5 humankind challenges and international trade opportunities
The competition is organised in 5 different sections representing 20 companies each, making reference to each one of the aforementioned challenges, which are:

- Augmenting humans through technology with IoT and wearables
- Building smart cities and the future of mobility with a specific focus on green and smart mobility

The top 10 companies will be decided after several simultaneous pitch sessions, which will be focused on the challenges and the opportunity to improve international trade, investments and innovation for the benefit of mankind. The winners (top 10 startups) will then be announced during the final Plenary Panel. This will be followed by a handover between the Italian and the Indonesian presidency of the G20 innovation league at the Teatro Comunale Tasso, closing the event.
