Key to our method is putting the problem to be solved at the heart of cities’ procurement process. Cities generate on average a 200% ROI on such problem-based procurement through the following outcomes:

  • Discovery of transformative solutions that can fundamentally change service delivery and unlock better quality and savings potentials

  • Avoid costly re-invention of existing solutions tried elsewhere, leading to major cost-reductions and quicker time-to-deployment

  • More local jobs through increased entrepreneurship by making your city spending more accessible to small businesses and organisations

We have delivered 90 challenges in 52 cities, in areas such as health, sustainability, social innovation, transport, tourism, economic development and urban services.
