The ‘Arcadis City of 2030 accelerator, powered by Techstars’ is part of Arcadis’ Digital Innovation Hub in Amsterdam, which focuses on identifying opportunities for new products and services to meet clients’ needs today and tomorrow. It is one of two new initiatives. The other is the new Digital Studio Incubator, Arcadis’ internal product and service development group that launches April 1.
The initiatives are part of Arcadis’ city-centric vision and strategy of continued digital innovation and growth.
“We have to establish both internal and external initiatives to identify and carefully grow ‘the new’. We are serious about being a digital frontrunner in our industry and therefore we have to developed certain value propositions ourselves, as well as co-create and buy into what happens at the frontier through early stage ventures,” said Patrick van Hoof, Global Director of Innovation at Arcadis.
