Expert on urban design and transportation, Gabe Klein, is set to publish his new book “Start-Up City: Inspiring Private and Public Entrepreneurship, Getting Projects Done, and Having Fun” this October.
With David Vega-Barachowitz, Klein demonstrates how to effect big, directional change in cities, and describes “public entrepreneurship,” and his determination to inspire a start-up-pace energy within the public sector.
With the advent of self-driving vehicles and other technological shifts upon us, Gabe Klein asks how we can close the gap between the energised, aggressive world of start-ups and the complex bureaucracies struggling to change beyond a geologic time scale.
This book is for anyone who wants to change the way that we live in cities without waiting for the glacial pace of change in government.
Adrian Fenty – Former Mayor of Washington, D.C. – explains, “Gabe’s lessons in “Start-Up City” break down the barriers between the public and private sectors in pursuit of a greater city and citizenry. The elusive recipe for successfully innovating within the confines of government is in this book.”
