We invited 10 successful entrepreneurs – our “prospective CEOs” – to join us for 10 days to address wicked problems and opportunities that matter to Cities.
We challenged these 10 prospective CEOs with 10 wicked problems in water or infrastructure to identify market-based solutions that may become their new ventures.
Meet our Prospective CEOs and read about the Wicked Problems they addressed.
How can we provide real time access to water quantity and quality data to better inform business, public policy and consumer/customer decisions (from retail to consumer level)?
Water quality is declining, globally; how might we improve water quality from non-point sources (agriculture) and point sources (specific discharges); how do we best manage storm water?
Science keeps improving, and we know more and more about the quality of our water, yet we lack the systems to address new and growing concerns. How can water providers keep up?
How might we harness “big data” more effectively? What data is required to support and improve decision making?
How can additional public data (collected at the federal and/or state level) complement and enhance city data?
