Accelerating a future of proximity and abundance

"'Moore’s Law for everything' should be the rallying cry of a generation whose members can’t afford what they want. It sounds utopian, but it’s something technology can deliver (and in some cases already has). Imagine a world where, for decades, everything — housing, education, food, clothing, etc. — became half as expensive every two years."

"'Urbanist tech' is probably the single most powerful category of sustainable value creation available to us, and somehow it's not nearly visible enough. What you are doing is just essential. This is an incredibly timely area of focus, and I think there are a lot of people and skills that aren't being pulled into company-founding yet." — Stealth Urbanist Founder"Laura has been instrumental in helping advise and guide us, and get us on a solid path of growth. More than just an early-stage investor, she has helped us navigate the gauntlet that all startups go through, to refine, communicate and realize our vision, and bring our solutions to an eagerly awaiting market." — Swyft Cities

"We need to build more homes, trains, clean energy, research centers, disease surveillance. And we need to do it faster and cheaper."
