Smarter Cities 2025

Building a Sustainable Business and Financing Plan

In today’s digital age, becoming a smart city is vital for attracting business, residents, tourists, and talent, and for ultimately fostering growth and prosperity. But the path to a smart city future is often unclear to urban leaders, who require a deeper grasp of the approaches that will drive the best results.

To provide cities with a more effective roadmap, ESI ThoughtLab teamed up with a coalition of organizations with urban and technology expertise to conduct ground-breaking research into the impact of smart city solutions on urban performance.

Our analysis enabled us to answer three crucial questions facing today’s local governments:

  • What are the characteristics of successful smart cities, and how do they create value for residents, businesses, and local government?
  • What is the most effective path to becoming a smart city, and how do you need to adjust it for your city’s unique economic and social footprint?
  • What are the quantifiable direct, indirect, and catalytic benefits of smart city investments? Which approaches will have the biggest impact on business growth, economic competitiveness, and living standards?
