City Tech

We reinvent cities.

More than half the world’s population now lives in urban areas. This global urbanization pattern, with increased population and density, is putting intense pressure on physical spaces, infrastructure capacity, and natural resources—as well as the ability to deliver services associated with these assets.

Today we have increased capabilities for information gathering and insights from smart devices, social platforms, sensors, computing storage, and analytical tools. These resources have created new opportunities for public practitioners, companies, research institutions, and city residents to understand and improve the urban environment.

City Tech transforms cities into testbeds for new ideas. With partners and people, we remake essential services and infrastructure, from skills to skyscrapers. We then prepare these solutions for other cities, thus increasing the world’s odds of solving big, urban problems.
