If this is possible, what factors make a city more competitive than another? What elements determine the local economic development? How can we balance economic growth, social equity and environmental protection?
In order to answer this and many more questions, and, even if I was getting older, I chose to go back to school. At the Wager School of Public Service, at the New York University (NYU), I had the opportunity to collaborate with the department of operational research to respond to my concerns.
Three years later, back from New York with my project in mind, I had the privilege to combine my experience in consulting and firm management with the deep talent for public management and leadership of Jordi Hereu, Mayor of Barcelona from 2006 to 2011. Together, we created a start-up: IdenCity. Together, we selected, and keep selecting, the best consultants and partners to create a multi-skilled, multidisciplinary and international team. Thanks to this, we offer a 360-degree view on urban challenges.
