HOW WE LIVE IN CITIES IS ONE OF THE GREAT CHALLENGES OF OUR TIME.
Cities everywhere are focused on solutions that create jobs, save resources and improve livability. But the problem isn't will — it's coordination. Cities are tackling smaller problems one at a time, and in isolation. As a result, they are missing opportunities to strategically invest in economic and workforce development, community engagement, and livability. What if all of our efforts could work in concert, amplifying our ideas and innovations to a scale equal to the size of the problem?
That's where we come in.
We are an independent and innovative nonprofit that brings together business and sustainability leaders to incubate partnerships, drive innovation and solve tough problems on a truly metropolitan scale, here and in cities around the world. Through scalable — and replicable — pilot projects, we help transform research into action, promote smart policy and drive targeted investment in new technologies and practices, strengthening our economy and quality of life.
