Greg Lindsay, New Cities Foundation
Seven years ago, Uber, AirBnB, and WeWork didn’t exist. Today, one is worth more on paper than General Motors, another more than Hyatt and the third more than Boston Property. Why? The pithy answer is that there’s an app for all that, but the truth is more complicated—how and where we live, how we move and how we work are all being disrupted. The rise of co-working, co-living and ride-hailing all point to new possibilities for networking, re-purposing and more intensively utilizing what was previously just a house or a car or the office. In addition, how we perceive the cities, how we use them and how we find each other within them has been fundamentally altered by our ability to connect, to summon services on demand and to analyze and use our increasingly sophisticated “data exhaust” (e.g. location data, likes, check-ins, taxi and Uber trips, and more).
Come hear the New Cities Foundation’s Greg Lindsay illustrate how the city-as-a-service is changing how we live, move, work and love—and the opportunities this creates.
Learn more about the presentations and events taking place at the all new IBS Live. This year, we’re exploring the future of housing and the products, processes and people disrupting our industry.
