Our Process



Collaborate with local, state and federal authorities to co-create a UCNA Smart City Project. This could mean a rehabilitation of an existing area or a fresh build on a parcel within a city or nearby.

Every project includes an Innovation Hub, a Digital Twin with KPI assessment tools, Smart City tech and infrastructure upgrades.



Fund the project by combining UCNA’s global reach with our funding partners and own financing resources: Opportunity Zone Funds, Real Estate Funds, Venture Capital Funds, UCNA’s non-profit fund, UNCA’s Donor Advised Fund (DAF) and other funding sources.



Build the UCNA Smart City Project via partnerships with developers, builders, tech partners and local stakeholders.



Support and grow Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) focused companies housed within The Innovation Hub with UCNA’s Venture Fund & partner network. UCNA provides the resources and global distribution network to scale meaningfully and rapidly.

The end result is a newly constructed Smart City that supports the local community with jobs, live-work spaces and tech that brings meaningful sustainability and better living to the local and global community

The UCNA Innovation Hub

The UCNA I-Hub is a place to connect companies and innovative technologies with the capital, partnerships and growth opportunities they need to scale up and meaningfully effect the world.
