Our Purpose

Build the urban ecosystem for emerging cities and their slums.

How We Work

We’re establishing a network of CITYLabs across Africa, Asia and Latin America. These urban venture studios build and back urban startups that are making their cities better for the many, not just the few.

Where We Work

We have teams on the ground in Rio de Janeiro, Kathmandu and Lagos so far. We’ve worked with city governments in Buenos Aires and Ulaanbaatar. We’re actively laying groundwork in Mumbai and Nairobi. Our Mothership is based in San Francisco.

Our Manifesto

We believe these five things to be true about the future.

Our Organization

We consider ourselves an emergent organization. Our distributed organization is led by four partners — Jonathan Hursh, Marco Brandao, Dori Nguyen and Emmanuel Adegboye.
