The CEO of BABLE Smart Cities, Alexander Schmidt, is currently in Santiago de Chile as a member of the approximately 35-strong delegation of Baden-Württemberg's Minister for Economic Affairs, Labor and Tourism, Dr. Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut.

As part of this, on Friday he signed the new partnership agreement with the Chilean smart city ecosystem DO! Smart City. Through the cooperation, both parties pursue the goal of supporting municipalities and companies on both sides of the Atlantic in the faster and more efficient implementation of smart city solutions. Alexander Schmidt is pleased about this development:

"By working closely together, we will be in an even better position to further disseminate existing solutions and jointly bring new, targeted projects to the streets. As a result, our sphere of action is no longer limited to Europe, but we can now also take off in Chile."

Dr. Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut is also very pleased about the conclusion of the contract:

"I am very pleased to be able to accompany BABLE GmbH in this further important step towards internationalization and wish the company and its Chilean cooperation partners Do! Smart City every success for their future cooperation. BABLE is an example of the innovative start-ups in our country that we support year after year as part of our Start-up BW Pre-seed program, helping them to make the leap into independence. With the future topic of Smart City and innovative concepts, BABLE has successfully followed the growth path in recent years. Climate protection, for example, requires resource-conscious and careful action. Great successes can be achieved with smart solutions - especially in municipal infrastructure. I am very pleased about this success story 'made in Baden-Württemberg' and hope that the cooperation now contractually sealed has laid the foundation for many more exciting chapters to come."

The delegation trip focuses on the topics of hydrogen, circular economy and raw materials and consists of representatives from politics, business and science. These are all subject areas that must be considered and included in smart city solutions.
