A differentiated partner in innovative infrastructure

Owners of innovative businesses seeking to apply technology to infrastructure today often lack a good source of financing: the use of venture capital may be too dilutive or restrictive, and banks may not lend against technology viewed as speculative without the exorbitant cost. Sidewalk Infrastructure is organized as a company uniquely structured to allow it to take a long-term and open-ended approach to the realization of strategic goals.

If you are running a business and seeking a long-term partner to support your growth in the application of technology to the mobility, energy, water and waste, digital infrastructure or social infrastructure domains, Sidewalk Infrastructure would like to hear from you.

Owners and operators of infrastructure assets today may not be engaged with technology developers who can help to position their assets toward the future — and may be reluctant to undertake commercial risks associated with the deployment of new technologies. Sidewalk Infrastructure believes technological applications can enhance the utilization, efficiency, and flexibility of a traditional asset base, ultimately supporting higher-value and more sustainable long-term operations.

If your company manages traditional infrastructure assets and is seeking a forward-thinking partner to explore the application of technology to a portion of your asset base, Sidewalk Infrastructure would like to hear from you.

Municipal authorities responsible for operating and maintaining the essential infrastructure systems underpinning their communities may have access to limited funding to undertake much-needed improvements. Sidewalk Infrastructure believes supporting safe, well-maintained and technology-enabled infrastructure systems is essential to improving quality of life, and economic opportunity for urban residents. Its leadership team has experience in structuring productive partnerships with public entities to support and expand economic activity.

If you work for a municipal authority or agency and are exploring how to help facilitate the improvement program for a critical infrastructure system, Sidewalk Infrastructure would like to hear from you.
