InSITE, as part of its Always Be Closing (“ABC”) series, has been working hard partnering with IBM to find early state entrepreneurs to participate in IBM’s Smart Cities SmartCamp in New York on May 24th.

Through the Smart Cities global initiative and the Smart Camps program IBM is looking to bring together entrepreneurs, investors and experienced mentors to help build a Smarter Planet.

Does your company address problems the world is facing in energy, healthcare, telecommunications or any of the other areas of Smarter Planet? If that sounds like your company and it is less than 5 years old, privately held and has a solution to make our planet smarter, please apply!

SmartCamp Participants will have the chance to advance to SmartCamp Boston (June 20-21) and will receive:

– Mentorship from world class investors and advisors
– Exposure to IBM Industry Executive Leadership and Business Development Leaders

The winners of SmartCamp Boston will take part in a three-month mentorship with IBM and will be invited to attend the SmartCamp Global Finals. “SmartCamp was an incredible experience which connected us with an A-list of investors, advisors and industry experts” says Albert Santalo, CEO of Miami based CareCloud, a disruptive cloud-based healthcare IT company. Since being announced as 2010 SmartCamp Silicon Valley winner, CareCloud raised over $20M in Series A funding.
