Posted on Tuesday, November 7, 2023

Who we are:

Founded in 2017, Upciti is a seed-stage, VC-backed (Point Nine, Chalfen Ventures, Demeter, Innovacom, NCI) category-defining smart city solution. Upciti supports cities of all sizes in their smart transition by simplifying the how they collect their data and process it for a better understanding of city dynamics.


At Upciti, we build everything we deploy in-house: from privacy-by-design computer vision sensors to a full SaaS solution. We have already deployed more than 2,000 sensors worldwide across 14 countries and are operating in cities such as Paris, Monaco, Florence, Montreal, and Marseille.

The problem we are solving:

Getting quality urban data in order to create or improve citizens services is a challenge.

The poor quality sensors, the lack of interoperability, the multitude of companies in the data chain, and expensive solutions make deriving insight on ever evolving city-scapes incredibly complex. We are simplifying this complexity by building a tailored cost effective solution that is easy to use and fast to deploy.


How we are fixing this:

By bringing together all of the individual services needed to understand a city's various data points more efficiently, we are able to help cities deploy new services with higher relevancy and at greater speed to better serve their citizens. We manufacture our own multi use sensors, develop our own IoT management platform and we enable our customers to send their data to anyone wanting to use it by simplifying API redirections and offering full interoperability.

As we gear up to deploy an ambitious roadmap, we are hiring backend & API engineers.
