Collaboration & Support

We like to think of Zenciti as a movement, rather than a real estate development or smartcity, we want every collaborating person or institution to make it their own.
It is our belief that it’s the only way a project as ambitious as this can happen.

These partners / collaborators / supporters are already on board.
