Accelerating Urban Innovation
through entrepreneurship and collaboration

Entrepreneurial innovation has a vital role to play in tackling today’s toughest urban challenges.  The launch of FastFWD unlocks unprecedented opportunities for entrepreneurs to collaborate with cities to source, cultivate, and deploy solutions to pressing problems facing cities across the country.

FastFWD offers entrepreneurs access. We provide access to the core problems, prioritizing and presenting them as target of entrepreneurial opportunity. We provide access to expertise.

Delivered through GoodCompany’s rigorous acceleration framework, entrepreneurs will refine their solutions with subject matter experts and end users from City government, and hone their business model with finance and execution experts from Wharton Business School. We provide access to capital. FastFWD entrepreneurs receive non-equity fellowships, qualification for funded pilots, and preparation to attract venture capital.
