TORONTO, Nov. 6, 2018 /CNW/ - Today at the Intelligent Cities Summit in Toronto, UrbanLogiq proudly announced an agreement with Invest in Guelph to develop an online economic development platform that will help City staff attract and retain investment in Guelph.
The UrbanLogiq platform will serve as a unified platform for all of the City's economic development use cases and provide staff with locally-driven economic impact analysis, better data on local businesses, and real-time availability of real estate properties in Guelph.
"The online platform from UrbanLogiq will help us identify economic development opportunities with our own data faster and at a lower cost than our current process," says Tyson McMann, Business Development Analyst for Invest in Guelph. "UrbanLogiq will also be bringing in outside datasets to help us get a better understanding of local businesses, numbers of employees, and their interdependencies to supply chains."
"We are excited to work with the forward-thinking leadership team at Invest in Guelph," says Mark Masongsong, CEO and Co-Founder of UrbanLogiq. "The potential in the smart city space is often talked about, but what you're seeing in Guelph is real action to harness the power of data, analytics, and artificial intelligence to support decision-makers in building an economy that is sustainable, prosperous, and inclusive for all the residents of Guelph."
To support the development of this platform, UrbanLogiq and Invest in Guelph will be forming an Economic Insights Working Group composed of thought leaders from around the world to advance a framework for sustainable, inclusive, and smart community development using emerging dynamic data sources.
