Brinc Partners with RISE Resilience on $1.5M Coastal City Community Challenge
With global average sea level's rising and climate change leading to more frequent and extreme weather events, Brinc and RISE have come together to help advocate innovative solutions regarding these issues. Read more about the partnership here.
Challenge is described in detail here. In summary, Coastal Communities seek innovative solutions for the following:

Protection of buildings: maintaining the viability of existing buildings facing different levels of flooding.
Data analytics: improving the ability to more effectively prepare for, respond to, and recover from disruptions.
Re-establishing critical utilities: re-establishing and maintaining functionality of critical systems after an acute event to prevent cascading failures and degradation in the resilience of a community.
The 12-month challenge will help support founders who are solving problems that are enhancing the resilience of coastal communities.
