Where people live impacts growth.

By this, we mean growth in every form - the growth of individuals, the growth of families, the growth of communities, the growth of economies. We mean growth in terms of health, wealth, relationships, enterprise, knowledge and understanding.

We believe the world needs more great places to live.

It’s true everywhere, but especially true in emerging markets. Today, physical and digital infrastructure inhibit growth. As a result, there aren’t enough jobs, affordable housing, health care or education.

Right now, there are hundreds of new cities being planned and developed to create new opportunities for growth. In Africa alone, there are over a billion square acres of new cities and land reclamation efforts underway to meet the urban living needs of the growing population.

Some are following in the footsteps of communities like Singapore, Dubai and Shenzhen, adopting special economic charters to create new types of businesses and ways of working. Others are brand new neighborhoods and planned communities coming to life through mixed-used development.

People who are drawn to these new places come for a wide variety of reasons - better homes, better jobs, closer communities, better lives.

Culture & Values

The purpose, values, culture, habits and norms of an organization can be thought of as the organization’s operating system (OS). They set the underlying “code” by which collaboration happens, decisions get made, problems get solved and progress occurs.

Our software helps make best practices efficiently replicable for the new cities we work with. So our company should do the exact same thing.

Instead of starting from scratch, with regards to culture, values and ways of working, we’re taking a “replicate then innovate” approach to getting our culture right from the start.
