From smartphones and cloud computing to ride-sharing services and electric cars, disruptive technology is changing the way we live – and nobody understands disruption better than startups. Whether they’re independent entities funded by VCs or emerging companies within the walls of a large corporation, startups recognize the power of technology to solve problems and improve lives, and they have been instrumental in challenging the status quo and shaping our society.
But startups can’t be expected to do it all alone. Lean operating budgets and a need to move quickly demand that these organizations make efficient use of their limited resources – and that means not “reinventing the wheel” when it comes to their underlying tech. By working with the right partner who can provide the right resources and expertise at the right time, startups are free to focus on what matters most: bringing their innovation to market.

This paper proposes a fourth core value, inclusivity: provisioning services to all city residents regardless of their background.
