  1. 1. We think about cities as products.
  2. 2. We believe it is possible to build new satellite cities (50-100k people).
  3. 3. Inspiration: Work is about to start on a high-density, car-free "satellite city" for 80,000 people that will be built from scratch in a rural location close to Chengdu and later replicated in other parts of China.
  4. 4. People are open to new options Co-working is huge for a reason > cities can be lonely People want to live next to their friends Urban walkable cities are becoming too expensive for people that work in creative industries Millienials and retired baby boomers don’t want to live in the suburbs
  5. 5. Suburbs 3.0 No ownership No cars Co-living Co-working Close enough to major metros, with people commuting a maximum of 2 days/week
  6. 6. Who will live there initially? Startup people / Remote workers: 1-12 months Writers/Painters: 1-12 months Architects: 1-3 months Software engineers: 1-6 months Makers: 1-3 months
  7. 7. Who will live there initially? Musicians: 1 - 3 months Visual Artists: Weekend - 2 weeks Performing Artists: Weekend - 2 weeks Filmmakers: Weekend - 2 weeks Graphic Artists: 1 - 3 months

  12. 12. 24-7 Shuttle
  13. 13. Plan 1/ Build founding team. 2/ Build community beach head in SF/Oak, and use established campground as testing ground. 3/ Validate thesis of creating location by moving 500 people (full-time) to campground. 4/ Validate fully loaded CAC of <$1k/resident.
  14. 14. Founding team 1/ VP Community 2/ VP Product 3/ VP Engineering 4/ VP Operations 5/ VP Finance 6/ VP Real Estate 7/ VP Marketing 8/ Chief of Staff

  16. 16. Appendix: Alice laughed. “There's no use trying,” she said. “One can't believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven't had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast!"
