Start Up City with Gabe Klein

Join Gabe Klein for the launch of his new book, Start-Up City  at BicycleSPACE Adams Morgan on November 4th from 7:30 to 9:30. 

"Gabe Klein is the former DOT director under Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration in Chicago and former Director of the District DOT under Mayor Adrian M. Fenty. In Washington he launched Capital Bikeshare, the first large-scale bikeshare system in the US, and in Chicago he later launched Divvy, which is now the largest bikeshare system in the US.

Klein is a relentless advocate for making cities better, taking his start-up mentality to the public sector. Now with his new book, he shares what he has learned about the new triple-
bottom line P3 of public-private partnerships: people-planet-profit. He demonstrates how private-sector innovators can align their profit motives with cities by prioritizing the greater good as a primary goal rather than just a marketing tool. Through it all, Klein shows how to infuse start-up pace and energy into the public sector to address today’s challenges as well as tomorrow’s. " - Island Press
