>> 6 months in 3 South American countries.


Ahead in innovative technologies, Colombia has many new urban projects. Medellin which is the second biggest city has set an example known world wide to offer access to transport to its entire population. It was elected as the « Most innovative City » in 2013 preceding New York and Tel Aviv. In order to encourage the local leaders, Colombia is at present working on a project to set up an ecosystem to help start ups carry out their projects (Hub in Bogota and Medellin).


Mexico, the world’s fourteenth economic power, is facing significant challenges to bring mobility for the megacities populations. With the second most important cycle path in North America (ECOBICI) and huge investment (around 150 million dollars) in public transportation, Mexico city is working to provide a sustainable transportation service to his 21 millions of inhabitants.
But Mexicans are not only innovating on infrastructures. They recently won the « Audi Urban future award » by proposing an « operating system for urban mobility » (a data collection platform to evaluate the traffic and manage it automatically).


With its population of 201 million inhabitants and an urban growth rate of 84% Brazil is working hard day after day on improving the transport system in its megacities. This country has been a pioneer in mobility innovations (first BRT – Bus Rapid Transit System, set up in Curitiba in 1974). Known for its dynamic ideas, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte and Sao Paulo are the award winners of the « Sustainable Transport Award 2015 », an award granted by a world committee which rewards cities who contribute towards improving mobility and the life of their citizens.



After two years in India, we noted:

  • An exponential urban growth.
  • A lack of infrastructure for a growing and deserving population!
  • A dynamic country involved in Smart cities program and looking for innovative ideas.

Our desire:

  • Explore urban innovations, outside Asia, which corresponds to this problem.
  • Share appropriate methods with Indian cities and other international organisations which can be adapted to their environment.
