Base and Venture - The Resilient City 1

Base @ The Resilient City

Date: Thursday 28th September, 2017

Location: Venture Cafe / CIC: Stationsplein 45, Groothandelsgebouw CIC, 4th Floor, 3013 AK, Rotterdam


Base Cyber Security is moderating a discussion on Cyber Security / Cyber Resilience! Join us for the lunch session discussions and get the chance to share thoughts and exchange views on the topic.

On Thursday, September 28th, we welcome innovative startups, corporates and governments to strengthen resilient Rotterdam. Rotterdam is one of 100 resilient cities.

A resilient city is ready to tackle 21st-century challenges that weaken the fabric of a city. Challenges that vary from shocks – like earthquakes and floods – to stressors such as high unemployment, overtaxed public transport or chronic food and water shortages.

By addressing these challenges, a city learns to be responsive to adverse events and evolves into an adaptable home to all populations, in both good and bad times.

During The Resilient City, we will focus a full day on water-, energy-, cultural-, social- & cyber resilience with expert speakers, panel discussions and plenty of networking. Locally as well as internationally!

The Resilient city takes place in CIC in Groothandels Gebouw, which is an icon to the rebuilding of Rotterdam. Join our program during StartupFest Europe and collaborate in interactive sessions to start pilot projects.

“Rotterdam has always shown resilience, but innovative cities remain successful by being future–driven, rather than coasting on past successes.”

– Mayor Aboutaleb
