iTwin Activate

Building the Future of Digital Twin Technology

The iTwin Activate program fosters collaboration between Bentley and early-stage start-ups in the infrastructure software industry. The program helps the start-ups build on Bentley’s digital twin platform technology, shares our industry expertise, and supports their efforts with funding out of Bentley’s iTwin Ventures fund.

Applications for the Infrastructure Internet-of-Things cohort are now closed.

The next program will be launched in Q1 of 2024.

Who we’re Looking for

Early-stage start-up who are serving the infrastructure industry with software solutions

The iTwin Activate Program is for start-ups seeking venture funding who are pre-seed or early seed-stage. The start-up should be primarily a software-focused business, focused on creating solutions for professionals in the infrastructure industry.

iTwin Activate II: Internet of Things for the Infrastructure Industry – Application Window Closed

Our current iTwin Activate cohort is focused on start-ups creating infrastructure IoT solutions. We are open to start-ups working in all areas of the infrastructure industry, especially in the transportation, energy, water, and construction sectors.

We welcome start-ups to propose their vision for projects that can be built upon or integrate with our technology. Two categories of problems that we have a particular focus on are:

Sensor Analytics: predictive analytics and industry-specific insights

We are excited to help start-ups create solutions to produce predictive analytics or derive insights from sensor data hosted within our iTwin data ecosystem.

Sensor Data Ingestion: Novel sensors or sensing technologies

We’re excited to work with start-ups developing new sensor technologies, communications methods, or packaging that provides significant competitive differentiation in an industry or application that historically has not been commercially feasible. We see great value in assisting these start-ups in bringing their data into infrastructure digital twins via our sensor data service.
