Schwerpunkt Real Estate - Welcome to Frankfurt - Shaping the City of Opportunities

Robin Weninger - Global Shapers Frankfurt – Part of the Global Shapers Community, an initiative of the WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM

"The world is moving from countries to cities. But what does it take to be one of the leading cities in the world?
What are the drivers that improve cities and what makes it worth living in them?
How do cities cope with the intelligence explosion caused by the upcoming technological breakthroughs?
And how does society and the people living in the city cope with the ever-growing transparency of the complexity of our interconnected world?
A city of opportunities is not just economically powerful but is also a powerhouse in shaping the future, a place that drives innovation and creation, and is at the forefront of tech-development. It’s a city where people enjoy spending their time, where collaboration is happening and society is striving. It’s a city with a positiv impact on people’s life. It is an intelligent city, connecting the world around it and drawing on the advantages on the development of artificial intelligence as well as the creative and intellectual potential of the people in the city.

Through the syngeries build around intelligent technologies and the brightest minds, the city of opportunities facilitates solving major global challenges by maximising overall human wellbeing. The city of opportunities exports intelligent solutions, focusses on collaboration and partnerships, and understands the potential of co-creation and participation, where "Mensch" and “Machine” go hand-in-hand.

A city of the future is more than just business, more than just a mobility and logistics superpower, more than a property and real-estate rat-race.
It’s a city with a vision, a sustainable local DNA and global footprint.
It is a city build on intelligence - intelligence created by technology and the people that live their - It is a city for you and me."

Welcome to Frankfurt!
