What We Believe

That great business practices and prudent policymaking matched with the appropriate technology can deliver first-rate results and positive outcomes. Technology is a means, not an end.

Effective public-private partnerships are relationships built on clear lines of communication, common goals, aligned incentives and outcomes. A long-term, triple bottom line strategy – people, planet, profit – leads to higher returns and a more sustainable financial future.

What We Do

We help city leaders, citizens and stakeholders to understand the complexity of 21st century challenges, facilitate people-centric solutions, utilize new models for delivery and technology-based tools to deliver triple-bottom line results.

In the process, we help government and companies to separate the techno-optimist hype from the real game changers that are often analog in nature.

Cityfi Thoughts on  Medium

“Networked machinery shapes our urban lives. Like brick-and-mortar architecture, the shaping is subtle, often unrealized consciously. Maybe we were given more time to transit the crosswalk because an elderly man was slowly crossing opposite us and a pedestrian video analytics system gave him more time to make it. Maybe you don’t want to picnic in the park because you know the LTE connection there is spotty. Maybe an environmental sensor whose video array is pointed straight up at the sky has informed your hyperlocal weather app which advises you to jump on the bus rather than walk because it knows your few blocks are about to get a sunshower.”
