Cloud-to-City Activation

By leveraging collaboration tools and decentralized finance, we are building the full-stack of capabilities for resourcing the digital twin of a city and actualizing these resources on the ground to empower local startup ecosystems across the globe.

build_[city] Ecosystems

Each build_[city] ecosystem operates as a DAO with a multi-signature account of local ecosystem builders.  From there, the ecosystem has full autonomy coupled with the resources and network of the broader build_republic.

IRL Blueprint in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

As a joint venture with Innovation Collective, a startup city developer, our blueprint ecosystem is based in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho that now has 2x more startups per capita than the rest of the state, 2x nine figure startups, 80K square feet of community-activated real estate for mixed-use creative-commercial tenants, and even legislative wins for AI and robotics innovation in the area.

Unlocking

Hidden Equity

With our digital platform, we can connect and empower hundreds of new and emerging startup cities around the world. Startup Genome estimates the cumulative value of the top 100 emerging startup ecosystems is $1 trillion (a 96% increase from 2021 to 2022 alone). The continued decentralization of capital and talent will fuel these emerging ecosystems and seed entirely new ones. Our mission at build_republic within these tailwinds is to
unlock the hidden equity in cities around the world.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a startup city?

There are three different types of startup cities:

1. A city that attracts startups (ex. Austin, Bangalore, Lisbon)
2. A city that runs like a startup (ex. Miami , Singapore, Dubai)
3. A city that is a startup itself (ex. Culdesac in Tempe AZ, Prospera in Honduras)

For a complete map of startup cities around the world and the methodology for identifying them, check out the Startup Cities Map

So...what exactly is build_ doing?

We're creating the infrastructure to create, finance, and govern startup cities around the globe starting with fostering Type 1 startup cities (see above FAQ) with a digital-first strategy. While some of these efforts will naturally start to overlap with Type 2 & 3 startup cities, the core of our efforts is focused on unlocking innovation in every corner of the globe from the bottoms up.

How will you achieve this?

Our mission is broken into 4 phases:

Phase I - Discover
Phase II - Engage
Phase III - Activate
Phase IV - Scale

See roadmap for complete details.

Will build_ be a DAO?

Yes; progressively so. By phase III the platform will be a DAO of DAOs in both supranational and local realms.

Is this a Network State?

You tell us.
