Benefits of participating

Smart Seeds brings together bright young minds from different disciplines and sectors to develop innovative concepts for the infrastructure industry.

Challenges are set by industry leaders. Teams then develop ideas, refine them and present their concept to industry leaders at an exclusive Showcase Event. Throughout the program, participants also develop professional skills and networks with fellow participants, experienced professionals and senior executives from a variety of organisations.

For all involved, it is an opportunity to inspire and be inspired by the development of ideas and new connections. Find out how it works.
