At the turn of the prior century fewer than 10% of the world's population lived in an urban area. Today, that number is at 50% and is projected to grow to 70%+ by mid century. This means that most of the people who experience the world's wicked problems – in health, water, food, energy, learning, infrastructure, transportation, security & privacy, waste and climate change – will experience them in cities. It also means that resources for addressing these problems will need to be found within cities and be focused on cities and their inhabitants. Startups have played a relatively insignificant role in these matters. Hold on tight, things are about to change.

A fines del siglo pasado, menos del 10% de la población mundial vivía en un área urbana. Hoy en día, ese número está en el 50% y se prevé que crezca a más del 70% para mediados de siglo. Esto significa que la mayoría de las personas que experimentan los problemas del mundo -en salud, agua, alimentos, energía, educación, infraestructura, transporte, seguridad, privacidad, basura y cambio climático- los experimentarán en las ciudades. También significa que los recursos para abordar estos problemas deberán encontrarse dentro de las ciudades y enfocarse en las ciudades y sus habitantes. Las empresas startup han jugado un papel relativamente insignificante en estos asuntos. Las cosas están a punto de cambiar.
