Episode Description

The buzz: “There are many initiatives for Smart Cities, but we also need Smart Citizens” (Ankit Lai). By 2050, over 70 percent of the world’s population will live in cities. How to meet the demands of such concentrated populations? Savvy leaders are tapping into civic innovation, hackathons for the art of the possible, and startup-in-residence programs pairing startups with government agencies. Civic Innovation is so top-of-mind, there’s an MBA for it! The experts speak. Jay Nath, City of San Francisco: “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much” (Helen Keller). Maryann Kongovi, Code for America: “Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody” (Jane Jacobs). Marlyn Zelkowitz, SAP: “Make the world work, for 100% of humanity, in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation...” (R. Buckminster Fuller). Join us for Smart Cities and Civic Innovation: There's an MBA for That!
