Members of Austin CityUP and other smart cities-focused efforts are encouraged to take part in next week’s office hours for the Dubai Smart City Accelerator. The global accelerator that is focused on sectors such as open city data, urban automation and mobility, smart government and sustainable cities will meet with Austin-based startups from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., June 3 at the WeWork office at 600 Congress Ave. Those interested in attending need to apply beforehand. Visitors will get an initial meeting of up to 30 minutes with the accelerator team, which will lead to 10 companies from all over the world taking part in the three-month program that includes seed funding, office space in Dubai and access to a global network of investors and corporate partners.
