Keys to A Smart City: Public Private Partnerships P3
January 31, 2017
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “Building a smart city? Follow the money” (placemeter.com). The American Society of Civil Engineers 2013 report card graded America’s infrastructure D+ and estimated US$ 3.6T investment is needed by 2020. Their March 2017 report will show that traditional financing sources are often inadequate. How do City leaders find resources for municipal services? We’ll ask practitioners from public private partnerships. The experts speak. Gert Christen, City Innovate Foundation: “Managing urban areas has become one of the most important development challenges of the 21st century” (John Wilmoth). Andrew Mack, AMGlobal Consulting: “The potential for greatness lives within each of us” (Wilma Rudolph). Jennifer Sanders, Dallas Innovation Alliance: “I’m tired of my own complaints. I need to get some new thoughts” (As Good As It Gets). Marlyn Zelkowitz, SAP: “We build too many walls and not enough bridges” (Isaac Newton). Join us for Keys to A Smart City: Public Private Partnerships #P3.
