Announcing: Strategic Partnership with the City of Toronto
In Barcelona, the City of Toronto, the Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas (TABIA) and UrbanLogiq were pleased to announce a strategic partnership with the aim of giving greater insight into the economic health and wellbeing of the city’s main streets and Business Improvement Areas (BIAs). The story was later featured in TechVibes and Smart Cities World.
For Toronto, UrbanLogiq will bring its economic intelligence and data analytics expertise and platform to analyze business and economic activity and health in Toronto through a mutual research and development (R&D) pilot.
“We are very excited by this strategic public-private partnership,” says UrbanLogiq CEO Mark Masongsong. “More governments are opening up to the possibilities of leveraging unconventional partners to lower the cost of innovation to the benefit of their residents. As one of the largest cities in North America that continually demonstrates a leading-edge mindset to technology and innovation, UrbanLogiq is thrilled to be working with the City of Toronto and TABIA.”
This partnership comes within the context of Toronto’s Digital Main Street program - an online platform and service for main street businesses that assists them with the adoption of digital tools and technologies. With data collected from over 5,000 main street businesses in Toronto, the goal is to better understand the adoption of digital tools and how it impacts main street businesses and their neighbouring communities.
