Advance smart cities

The challenge

Smart technologies have emerged as high-potential solutions to improve urban quality of life, in domains such as healthcare and sustainability. Smart technology could improve quality of life indicators by 10-30%. However, municipal governments lack the skills, technology and capacity to deliver smart cities on their own.

Our solution

Advance smart cities, by accelerating the adoption of smart technologies in large, developing cities

We are building a multi-stakeholder coalition to address barriers faced by companies and city governments in deploying smart technologies.
