Only the greatest cities become "Creators"

Yours can be one of them

How to turn your city into a Creator brand in 9 months

There are two kind of cities nowadays: Creator Cities and cities that nobody has heard of.

Creator Cities smart, they're social and they're strategic

They're smart because they create tools, teams and platforms that help them outsmart their competitors. They're social because they understand that a facebook page and an old website doesn't make you a social brand. They're strategic because they know that you can't build a legendary brand without a rock solid brand strategy first

"Building a Creative City is not easy. That's why 99% of the cities fail to do so. Unfortunately, there's no shortcut, there's no easy way, there's no miracle tool. If there was one, all cities would be ‘Creator Cities’. But fortunately, there’s a methodology that can get you there. It’s called ‘City-as-a-Startup’ and it’s Europe’s first methodology designed to help cities build solid city brands that are Smart, Social & Strategic"
