Cluster remain significant drivers of economic growth and expanding them is key to promoting local growth, igniting innovation and increasing resilience.
We are a team of entrepreneurs, consultants, researchers and practitioners with extensive experience in enhancing thriving ecosystems. Our approach is practical, based on successful case studies of igniting innovation in London. We have helped thousands of companies from all over the world to internationalise and put collaboration programmes in place. Our work spans many cities in Europe and Latin America and our expertise comes from both the private and public sectors.
We are action-oriented and believe in the concept that a small number of motivated people can generate significant shifts in economic development. We connect the dots, generate excitement and get things done. We come well-equipped with cluster insight, proprietary research methodology and extensive networks in both continents. We are results-driven and have gained a reputation in helping clients evolve from being policy and analysis-focussed to delivering engagement and taking action.
We do this because we believe that there is a sense of urgency in this field. Lethargic economies, untapped opportunities and a lack of innovation result in significant cost for both regions that neither can afford. Change is needed. The good news is that carefully designed interventions can ignite, champion and animate cluster competitiveness and internationalisation. We have the experience, you have the mandate and the market is waiting. Let’s work together.

More than half the world’s population lives in cities. The challenge of making these cities liveable, welcoming and hubs for inclusive prosperity is a complex one. Recent global happenings are not making it easier either, bringing questions of how to address growing and sometimes conflicting demands with limiting resources and little time to respond. No one player can address these new conditions alone but collective engagement of both the private and the public sector and their respective authorities can be a powerful alliance for good. The call is to join forces. Developing projects that foster collaborative thinking is what City Challenges is all about.
City Challenges is an innovative approach to create local economic growth, by helping cities to harness collaboration of engaged citizen, private sector partners, release the power of ideas and implement them. It is a well designed collective experience that results in effective solution that change the way cities deliver their services.
