Leading Cities is entering a new phase of its history by diversifying its activities, helping to identify disruptive trends and technologies. These activities not only analyze new patterns of social behavior and communication among citizens, but also produce a redefinition on the field of entrepreneurship and urban smart solutions leading to a redefinition of the urban fabric itself.
Lisbon, as one of our founding members, has also become a beacon in both the Smart Cities and Entrepreneurship worlds. Recently the City of Lisbon released its vision entitled “Lisbon: Economy, Innovation and Entrepreneurship.” This vision explicitly reinforced Lisbon’s ongoing partnership with Leading Cities to collaborate in the generation of a new understanding of what it means to be classified as “smart” and how this definition could help to promote new business and entrepreneurship as well as new social progress.
It is our distinct pleasure to share with you the Lisbon entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystems. Lisbon’s success and growth is being recognized globally and we invite you to consider this city as a gateway to economic and social progress. It has been an honor for Leading Cities to be a part of the transformative leadership that has led to much of Lisbon’s recent success.
