Urban Entrepreneurship and Innovation
This presentation looks at how three converging trends are shaping innovation and entrepreneurship in urban environments. Those trends are: collaboration and sharing economy, democratization of technology and innovation and urbanization. Dr. Cohen looks at three different types of urban entrepreneurship: independent, freelancer urban entrepreneurs and civic entrepreneurs who focus on improving their city through collaborative, business models.
How to become a world-class smart city
Smart cities will become a sizable market, with projections of nearly $40 billion spent on smart-cities technologies by 2016. And real estate experts predict that smart cities will in the future be attractive to the educated work force and will therefore become real-estate gold. All reasons enough to learn from smart cities across the world and get on the smart-city bandwagon.
Cohen proves the future of capitalism in a recession-riddles, car on-constrained world will be built on innovations that cutting-edge leaders are bringing to the market today.
Cohen iterates the best practices for cities to migrate and adapt to climate change.
