Infiniti Lab has opened applications for its IoT and smart city-focused accelerator in Toronto.

Launched last year, the accelerator runs a six-week program with eight startups, who receive mentoring and access to potential partners and investors. At the end of the program, startups pitch to a panel, who then select one startup moving on to the three-month Hong Kong program.

“Infiniti has an ambitious vision, recognizing the agile nature and benefits that startups can bring to our organization,” said Roland Krueger, chairman and global president of Infiniti. “Over the past three years we have worked with exceptional startups to develop pilots and partnerships that could transform our business. 2018 marks an exciting time as we strengthen our commitment and support for entrepreneurs worldwide.”

This year, startups will get the chance to pitch to The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance Ventures capital fund, which has $1 billion USD under management.

Applications are open to startups here.
