The Matchmaking session was designed to give participants the possibility to develop smart city projects and exploit different financial opportunities offered in the market. For this purpose, the Matchmaking provided project promoters with the occasion to meet experts from the financial sector, and for these to organize their own meetings with project promoters (including industry players and city representatives).

The activities carried out before the event, referred to as the matchmaking process (collection of project information standard project fiches), helped pre-schedule meetings to match promoters with investors/financiers relevant for the project in terms of country, type of development, financial need, and scale. In addition to the facilitated meetings, promoters were able to independently schedule meetings through the General Assembly app. These meetings were informal and there were no constraints on time or place.
