Living Labs Global / CityMart.com | Founder & General Director | Spain
Sascha Haselmayer is creating mechanisms for spreading innovation into cities with the aim of improving governance and radically altering the way cities deliver much-needed services. Living Labs Global brings low-cost, systems-based solutions to cities under financial pressure. Utilising ‘Showcase’, an online platform where innovators can promote their solution in a global database, innovations from green housing to automation of urban services are implemented. The next phase of the project has seen Sascha launch CityMart.com, an online professional networking and market intelligence network for cities. The site aims to have 500 cities and 5,000 companies taking part in the network by 2013.
