INTRODUCING URBAN-X COHORT 03.

NINE NEW COMPANIES AT THE URBAN TECH AND DESIGN ACCELERATOR.

Every six months the venture accelerator URBAN-X invests up to $100,000 per company in as many as ten companies. This cohort of innovative startups span the realm of urban development from reimagining infrastructure, real estate, local government and more. They announced the third class in a special event on September 28.

Members of previous cohorts included the dynamic vertical farming startup Farmshelf and the last-mile logistical endeavor Upcycles, both profiled in The Journal.

Among the nine members of the third class (including two resident companies) are Lunewave, exploring sensor systems for fully autonomous vehicles; Qucit, applying artificial intelligence to optimize the operation of cities; RoadBotics, a roadway monitor and managing system using technology built at Carnegie Mellon University Robotics Institute. In addition, there are two companies-in-residence: Good Goods, a collaborative retail model for shared urban spaces, and Hosta Labs, developing 3D models from regular pictures for design and renovation.
