Our Massive Transformative Purpose (MTP):
Accelerate Technology into Society

Our Mission

Our mission is to inspire, educate and empower cities and their citizens to find cutting edge, scalable ways to solve critical urban challenges 10X faster and cheaper than previously thought possible.

Our framework,
based on the methodology from the book, Exponential Organizations, teaches cities and their citizens how they can create solutions to critical problems facing their city 10 times faster and 10 times cheaper than previously considered possible.

Our Impact

Fastrack Institute is a non-profit organization achieving social impact through injection of knowledge and technology to enable cities to adapt to and capitalize on rapid technological change alongside rapid urban population growth.  We work together with our member cities to find cutting edge, scalable solutions to grand urban challenge. Our focus is primarily on solving urban problems for cities and regions of one million or more citizens, although we do work with smaller cities and communities.

The opportunity

Cities are the future. Using accelerating technologies and the exponential organizations methodology delivered via the Fastrack framework, we can provide scalable solutions to urban problems faced by cities and their citizens.

Why cities?

Studies show people identify with the city they live in more than their region or country.
They have the most direct influence over change at that level through things like taxes and the power of their vote.

Our Solution

The Fastrack framework empowers cities, their leaders, and their citizens, with multidisciplinary teams, to find solutions for critical civic problems. It is a comprehensive process that rapidly establishes design solutions, governance approaches and regulatory frameworks.

The success stories

The framework delivers companies with product-market fit and scalable repeatable business models:.

Cuidar.me is a platform that aims to increase the wellbeing of its users by becoming part of their daily lives providing content, communications, gamification and services that will foster a healthier lifestyle and reduce the risks of diseases.

Cuidar.me’s most important asset is people, and cuidar.me will connect people to any other services or partners that may empower users and increase their wellbeing.

The future

1000 cities running Fastracks every year:

8

Fastracks per city

Imagine 1000 cities producing 8 solutions per year and sharing them with each other all around the globe. We do.

10x

More efficient

We generate solutions that cost less in substantially less time than traditional frameworks.

16

Weeks per Fastrack

A Fastrack is an intensive process that delivers meaningful, scalable solutions.

“The opportunities for cities to leapfrog into the exponential new world by dealing with bits and algorithms rather than remaining stuck with dealing with atoms is of monumental importance.”
Rodrigo Arboleda

The next step

Solving urban problems through a Fastrack changes the approach to resolving issues and accelerates the adoption of technologies.

Fastracks are measurable, scalable process frameworks that impact cities by leveraging technology and information.
