Imagine how much more is possible when cities work with a united private sectorPlay Video
Pioneered by Mastercard, City Possible is a new model of public-private partnerships that brings together cities with a united private sector to solve system-wide challenges. By codeveloping, piloting and scaling solutions, it strengthens the new triple bottom line: people, cities and businesses.
The extreme pace of urbanization is affirming cities across the world as drivers of economic growth, innovation, global leadership, and, above all, as magnets for people looking for a better life.
With growth come major challenges. Cities and the private sector have begun to address these issues together. Yet too often, solutions offered by private enterprises focus on fixing a specific problem while cities are looking for roadmaps to implement digital transformation across their operations.
Real progress demands a fundamental change in the way city and business leaders work together.
More than 70% of the world’s population will live in urban areas by 2050.
80% of global GDP comes from today's cities.
