Global Urban Innovators

Startups and social entreprises that are transforming cities around the world through technology.

Global Urban Innovators is our community of trailblazing international urban tech companies. These startups and social enterprises creatively apply technology to tackle pressing urban challenges. We choose Innovators for their radically new approach to improving cities around the world.

Every year, NewCities carefully selects a group of path-breaking tech startups and social enterprises that are transforming their home cities, but whose solutions can apply to cities everywhere. We spotlight these successful, bottom-up projects, providing a platform in front of global companies, municipal decision-makers, the media and other forward-thinking entrepreneurs. We leverage our unparalleled access in the urban sector to give Innovators an international voice as change-makers. Global Urban Innovators are an integral part of our mission to make cities more inclusive, connected, healthy and vibrant.
