CityFi is in the business of urban change management.

We facilitate and help create positive, sustainable change for people and for the economy, fast. We equip leaders with the understanding of new business models and cutting edge solutions, and the policy frameworks and approaches that cities can use to leverage current and new technology.

What We Believe

Great business practices and prudent policymaking matched with the appropriate technology can deliver first-rate results and positive outcomes. But 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.

The Equalizer

A CityFi Blog

Co-Founder Gabe Klein provides a Q&A on how CityFi came to be and lessons for startups:

When thinking about our focus, we didn’t need to be tied to one thing, but rather a multitude of industries, functions, and public and private clients… as cities are becoming less siloed and are emerging as multi-stakeholder ecosystems with a desire to work across many aisles. Collectively, the CityFi team has varied and high level public and private experience, which makes the work we do interesting to cities, start-ups, and corporations.

What We Bring.

The KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE of professionals who have implemented at high levels in government, foundations and the private sector. Our team members have proven track records of success with outside the box solutions that have delivered sustainable and significant, directional change in the way cities work and the way people experience and participate in their communities. Not to mention high return on investment for stakeholder and shareholders.

We foster true PARTNERSHIPS that create value for people, for the environment and for the economy.

We also work with INNOVATIVE AND RESPONSIBLE global and local companies that deliver top flight services AND public good.
