CEOs for Cities

CEOs for Cities was founded in 2001 by Paul Grogan, author of Comeback Cities and President of the Boston Foundation. It is a civic lab of today’s urban leaders catalyzing a movement to advance the next generation of great American cities. We support the development of next generation cities by: identifying first-look trends and opportunities that represent the best opportunities for cities and the people who live in them to succeed; connecting urban leaders to powerful ideas and each other; articulating the value to cities and the nation of improving performance on key urban success measures; mobilizing new urban activists to execute real change in cities; and telling powerful stories about the potential of cities to solve our most pressing problems. Want to change the world? Start with your city (from the CEOs for Cities website).
