Embracing Austerity: How Will Cities Innovate?

Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at 2:30pm to 4:00pm

Virtual Event

Part of What's Next for Urban Tech?: A Cornell Tech Urban Tech Hub Roundtable Series

As cities face the biggest fiscal crisis in a generation or more, technology and innovation programs are among the first on the chopping block. Yet as European cities’ experience over the last decade has shown, it is possible to push an urban tech agenda forward under austerity. Cornell Tech Urbanist-In-Residence Anthony Townsend leads a conversation with Sascha Haselmayer, the founder and CEO of CityMart and a New America Foundation fellow, to discuss how cities can empower social entrepreneurs to co-produce government innovation.
