+ About City Tech Collaborative

City Tech transforms cities into testbeds for new ideas. With partners and people, we remake essential services and infrastructure, from skills to skyscrapers. We then prepare these solutions for other cities, thus increasing the world’s odds of solving big, urban problems. We are currently easing subway congestion during large events; creating a digital map of Chicago’s underground; and launching a digital directory of public health services in Chicago.

City Tech was born from a merger in 2017 between City Digital and the Smart Chicago Collaborative. City Digital was launched in 2015 to leverage Chicago’s commitment to bring essential services and infrastructure into the modern era; Smart Chicago was formed in 2010 to increase people’s access to the Internet and digital tools. As City Tech, we will reimagine cities as places where technology fuels opportunity, inclusion, engagement and innovation.
