Crowdsourcing Your Neighborhood

#sxsw #futurecity


Across the country, Gen Y talent and innovative companies are abandoning the suburbs in favor of the city. In the collaboration economy, individuals want to help shape their built environment, but the dialogue and investment between citizens and real estate developers is not always free-flowing. Technology is now connecting neighborhood residents with the real estate around them. In a concise, Future15 format with a conversation element, Fundrise and Popularise founder Kenny Shin will lead a discussion on lessons learned from some of the first urban development projects that utilized technology to directly engage with local residents and the effects of having the community included in equity ownership.
