Why Cities?

As cities grow, they magnify opportunities for their citizens. But city growth comes with large social and economic costs like traffic and crime. The biggest cost — cities depend on old technologies that produce about 70% of greenhouse gas emissions. How can we re-imagine cities to give us more opportunity without the costs? More and more startups are responding to this question.

We call it urbantech, and we’re helping startups increase their chances of success using capital and our network of startup founders, customers, partners, and investors.
