In a nutshell, UrbanLeap is helping cities solve their toughest challenges. With insights from hundreds of urban innovation projects and world-class workflows, cities leverage UrbanLeap to explore approaches, engage vendors, and rigorously evaluate the best solution for their unique needs.

The UrbanLeap platform is being used by over 70 local governments to manage 500+ projects involving more than 1500 vendors and delivering outcomes that matter to +30 million residents. Our city clients range from large (LasVegas) to small (Corona). We also work with regional authorities like San Mateo County and MARTA. Increasingly, we are being used to support networks that are either regional in nature (the Colorado Smart Cities Alliance),theme-based (ELGL’s Small PlacesBig Ideas Innovation Cohort), or challenge-based (The Paradox Prize). 

UrbanLeap is a VC backed startup that rewrites the way cities implement new technologies. In their quest to improve the life quality of residents, cities as diverse as Sacramento, Las Vegas, and Washington D.C. use our platform to identify solutions that fit their unique needs, evaluate the best approach based on hard data, and deploy technologies that deliver outcomes to residents. Cities are the backbone of society, and the opportunity to transform the way they connect and work with new innovative technologies. We’d like you to share this passion with us.
