More than ever, our municipalities and cities face major challenges. The economy of tomorrow begins in the cities of tomorrow. Entrepreneurship is crucial in this. It is the entrepreneurs who often lie at the basis of ground-breaking concepts and disruptive services. Because of their presence they give shape to the city of the future.
