For more than a decade, CEOs for Cities has been a fresh, distinctive voice for making cities more vibrant, sustainable, and economically competitive and successful. We have been aptly described as an “idea factory and lab for cities.”
CEOs for Cities is a global learning community and partnership network for American cities that connects cross-sector, cross-generational urban leaders to each other and to cutting edge research, ideas, and practices in the four areas most vital to city success: connectedness, innovation, talent, and your distinctive assets. We focus our work on actionable 1% City Dividends, premised on our research that measurable progress on targeted work reaps huge economic growth dividends for cities.
Our asset-based approach focuses on making strategic investments in the distinctive assets of cities; and our inter-connected, cross-sector approach acknowledges that the best solutions and practices come from the new and smart ideas generated at the intersection of the public, private, nonprofit, and philanthropic sectors.
