Global Launch: Join Us
Metroverse: The Growth Lab's Urban Economy Navigator
Join us Wednesday, June 2 from 12-1pm on Zoom for the launch of the Growth Lab's new digital platform: Metroverse. Our urban economy navigator provides policymakers, business, and civil society with unprecedented economic data for more than 1,000 cities in 79 countries.
This platform builds upon our Atlas of Economic Complexity, which maps the productive capabilities of 200+ countries and teases out their capacity for growth and development. Metroverse goes deeper where many of a nation’s capabilities reside: its cities and local workforces. The tool identifies the technological capabilities that underpin a city’s economy and assesses its future growth and diversification opportunities.
The event will feature a demonstration from Growth Lab director Ricardo Hausmann and our team, who will also provide insights into the research and technology behind the tool.
