Client Services

Our Client Services team provides expertise, experience, and a series of tools to help entrepreneurs, visualize, organize, and plan their business; define and quantify market opportunities; develop a value proposition; and access funding, including creating proposals to attract potential funders.

Smart Mobility R&D Network

The Smart Mobility R&D Network is a multi-site test environment consisting of both public and private sites. Organizations can test and validate their technology solutions in real time using the network, or add/utilize data from the Smart City IoT Data Repository, depending on their product testing and business needs.

Executives in Residence

For later stage companies, CITM also offers business development services connecting owners with Executives in Residence (EIR) to support growth objectives by assisting with strategic partner development, networking, and relationship building.
